Christians in the Middle East, too, must be protected 

On Thursday in the Carmelite Monastery, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán received prelate Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, with whom he had talks about helping Christians living in the region amidst the war conflict currently under way, Bertalan Havasi, the Deputy State Secretary heading the Press Office of the Prime Minister informed the Hungarian news agency MTI.

According to the Hungarian Prime Minister and the patriarch of Jerusalem, efforts must be made to stop the fighting and the animosities from leading to the disappearance of Christian communities in the Holy Land. 

Hungary will continue to help the survival of Christianity in the Middle East through the Hungary Helps Programme, and will also provide humanitarian aid as well as aid serving religious purposes for the people living in the region, the Prime Minister reassured the church leader at the meeting.
