Before the official signing of the document, the Prime Minister’s Press Chief Bertalan Havasi told reporters:
“In accordance with the Government Decree on providing support to persecuted Christians in the Middle Eastern region, the Hungarian government is helping to ensure that Christian families can continue to live in the land of their birth and return to their homes.
“In line with this goal, the Hungarian government has decided to provide 580 million forints (EUR 1.9 million) in funding towards the repair of damaged homes in the city of Tesqopa.”
In March the Cabinet decided to provide 580 million forints in funding towards the repair of damaged homes in the Iraqi city, in the interests of supporting persecuted Christians in the Middle East.
