Szijjarto asks Bavarian interior minister about incident prior to Germany-Hungary Euro 2020 match

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has asked the Bavarian interior minister to brief him about what punishment was imposed on the person who invaded the field waving a large rainbow flag during the Hungarian anthem being played ahead of the Germany-Hungary Euro 2020 match on June 23.

In a letter addressed to Joachim Herrmann, Szijjarto said the Hungarian national team had been subjected to an “unprecedented insult” before the kick-off.

It is also difficult to understand why the incident came as a surprise to the organisers who were well aware of the “efforts to create artificial political tension” before the match, Szijjarto said.
