PM Orbán Meets U.S. Ambassador For Religious Freedom
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met Sam Brownback, US Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, for talks on joint efforts to protect persecuted Christians and fight anti-Semitism in Europe.

Concern was expressed that “partly as a result of the migration crisis” anti-Semitism was again spreading in Europe.

Brownback said it was gratifying that cooperation between the Hungarian and American leaderships was steadily improving, and Orbán insisted that Hungarian-American relations were “excellent”, the PM’s press chief said.
