Szijjarto and Dermer discussed the situation in the Middle East, and Szijjarto reiterated Hungary’s stance that Israel had the right to self-defence, the Hungarian minister said on Facebook.

Szijjarto said the international community had a vested interest in avoiding terror attacks like the one Israel had suffered.

Dermer confirmed media reports that the body of a hostage, a Hungarian-Israeli dual citizen, had been found, Szijjarto said.

The ministers again reinforced their commitment to freeing the other Hungarian-Israeli hostage still held by Hamas, he said.
