We are ready to firmly defend Europe's cultural identity and intellectual heritage, Deputy Justice Minister Pál Völner said at an opening event of the Hungarian V4 presidency.

“Today, the Visegrád Group (V4) has considerably more substance than it used to and is an important forum that is capable of highlighting both its cooperation with the European Union and the importance of the fact that the diverse requirements of regions must not be trampled on”, Deputy Justice Minister Pál Völner told MTI at an event in Vienna to mark the Hungarian presidency of the Visegrád Group, Kormány.hu reported.
In his speech, Mr. Völner highlighted the fact that Europe is experiencing a difficult period and the significance of the Visegrád countries has increased from a security perspective. The immigration crisis, which has had many negative consequences, has proven the great importance of Europe’s cultural identity and intellectual heritage, “which we are ready to firmly defend”, he said.
