Deputy speaker Lezsak visits Mongolia

Sandor Lezsak, the deputy speaker of parliament, attended the 2nd annual Trans-Altai Sustainability Dialogue on Thursday and Friday, Parliament's press chief said on Saturday.

This year’s discussions focused on point 16 of the UN 2030 Agenda: peace, justice and strong institutions, and brought together representatives of science, NGOs and government to share best practices.

Lezsak said in his speech at the event that the European Parliament and US elections offered chances to bring about change, and he expressed hope that Donald Trump would again become president.

He noted that Hungary will soon take up the presidency of the European Union, and he referred to Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s “historic responsibility”.

Arpad Potapi, state secretary for Hungarian communities abroad who is also the vice-chairman of parliament’s Hungarian-Mongolian friendship group, addressed the event co-organised by the Mongolian parliament, the Ban Ki-moon Foundation for a Better Future, and the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center of Stanford University.
