- I believe that the memorandum, which was signed, will enable the religious groups the direct help and support, especially Christians, but also people of all faiths. We will support and work towards the international awareness of the violation of one of the fundamental human rights – the right to religious freedom – said the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Paweł Jabłoński in Budapest. 

 

The two-day trip in Hungary was organized for the invitation of the Minister of State for Helping Persecuted Christians at the Prime Minister’s Office Tristan Azbej. 

 

Polish Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Paweł Jabloński stressed that the signing of this agreement could provide the beginning of even closer cooperation with Hungary. Jabłoński said also that Hungary and Poland are not only partners but also friends. – We profess common values and share a similar view on many issues, including the need to help the persecuted – said. 

 

Referring to the memorandum, which was signed on the 17th of August, Jabłoński said that hundreds of millions of people worldwide were persecuted for their religious beliefs every day. In his opinion, the memorandum is proof that Poland and Hungary take actual efforts, not only words. What is more, both politicians – the Polish Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Paweł Jabloński and the Hungarian Minister of State for Helping Persecuted Christians at the Prime Minister’s Office Tristan Azbej - hope that other countries will join to this agreement.
