Szijjarto: Government determined to maintain zero tolerance of anti-Semitism

The Jewish community in Hungary can live in safety and peace because the government is determined to maintain zero tolerance of anti-Semitism, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Friday.

Szijjarto said on Facebook after a meeting with Andor Grosz, head of the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities (MAZSIHISZ), he had assured him that “developing cooperation with Israel will continue to play an important role in Hungarian foreign policy, and our country will continue to support Israel in international organisations”.

He also noted that he has known Grosz, who was recently elected MAZSIHISZ president, since childhood.

“I am sure that he will be an excellent leader for the largest organisation of Hungary’s Jewry,” he added.
