“I asked Pope Francis to support our efforts towards peace.”

rear meeting Pope Francis, Prime Minister Viktor Orban for Thursday’s Private Audience Said The logic of Hungary’s history has shown that Hungary views the Vatican and the Pope, the centers of Christianity, in a clear way.

Orban told public media that accepting the invitation to the Holy See follows “the great tradition of Hungary” in Rome, the first foreign port of call after the recent general elections.

The Prime Minister noted the well-known efforts of the Department of Divinities to promote peace and said his visit had special implications in the light of the war in Ukraine. Hungary is also striving for a peaceful resolution of the conflict as quickly as possible, he added.

Orban answered the question, saying he had officially invited Pope Francis to make an official visit to Hungary next year, adding that he had received a “reaction of encouragement.”

Orban said Hungary had so far accepted the largest number of people fleeing the war, including non-Ukrainian students, including 640,000 refugees, in proportion to its population.

“We are one of the largest humanitarian aids in history and are recognized and respected around the world for that reason,” Orban said. He referred to this and said, “I encouraged us not to give up on this good habit of us.”

The Prime Minister said that when it came to the Vatican, the country had a spiritual relationship rather than a political one. Both the Vatican and the Hungarian states agree on the importance of the family, he added.

“We all here in Rome, Vatican and Budapest consider the family to be the most important community of our time. The family is the last haven and safest residence for humans in this modern world. That is why we must put together all our efforts to protect and strengthen this most important human society in our time, and we can trust the Vatican in this effort. “Olburn said.
