Szili addresses 71st National Prayer Breakfast

Prime ministerial commissioner for minority affairs Katalin Szili talked about the importance of restoring peace and the situation of ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia in her address at the 71st National Prayer Breakfast held with the participation of two thousand guests from 90 countries in Washington, DC, on Thursday local time.

Szili told MTI that important steps were needed to attain peace and global security.

The values represented by the Prayer Breakfast are especially important today when there is a war in Hungary’s next-door neighbour, and “under such circumstances, it is important to find the values that lead people to each.”

Traditional and religious values, including the family and the home country are important to Hungary, Szili said at the Prayer Breakfast, adding that Hungarian politics were dedicated to establishing peace for Hungarians, no matter where they live.

She added that during her four-day visit, she had held several bilateral meetings, always highlighting the situation of ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia who live in their place of birth and for whom Hungary bears a responsibility.
