On September 13-14, Assistant Secretary Tristan Azbej, Head of the State Secretariat for the Aid of Persecuted Christians and Humanitarian Assistance of the Prime Minister’s Office met with leading officials of the United States International Development Agency (USAID) in Washington, D.C., held talks with State Department officials and representatives of religious and other non-governmental organizations, in addition to presenting the Hungary Helps Program at the International Religious Freedom Roundtable discussion.
On Thursday night, the Washington-based Center for Security Policy (CSP), as a founding member of the Save the Persecuted Christians Coalition, recognized the exemplary leadership of the Government of Hungary with the Coalition’s first “SaveUs Award”, for helping the persecuted Christian communities, at a gala dinner in Washington, DC. The award was received by Assistant Secretary Azbej, on behalf of the Government of Hungary. In his laudation (click for video) Greg Mitchell, Co-Chairman of the International Religious Freedom Roundtable, noted the Hungarian Government’s readiness to help persecuted Christians in the world, especially Hungary’s 2016 programme aimed at helping Christians in the Middle East. He called the initiative exemplary and called on other governments to follow suit. Assistant Secretary Azbej thanked CSP for the award (click for video) and blamed political correctness for belittling the gravity of the dangers facing Christian communities worldwide, and insisted that Christianity is currently the most persecuted religion.
