Hungarian Minister of Human Capacities stressed the importance of Israeli-Hungarian relations on his visit to Tel Aviv.

Jews and Hungarians, Jewish Hungarians and Hungarian Jews stand together in celebrating freedom, because the suffering for freedom was endured together 169 years ago”, Minister of Human Capacities Zoltan Balog said in Tel Aviv, commemorating the Revolution and War of Independence of 1848-49.

Speaking at the Hungarian embassy's reception on Thursday evening he praised the special relationship between the two countries and highlighted the fact that security issues will also be of great importance in Hungary in future. Mr. Balog emphasised that the Hungarian community in Israel, which has rich cultural traditions, a unique Central European Jewish religious, cultural and ethnic identity, is important to Hungary and to the Hungarian Government, and that continuity and maintaining relations will also be an important issue for the community’s future generations.
