Hungary wants UN guarantees on helping persecuted Christians

Hungary wants UN guarantees on helping persecuted Christians, by Hungary Journal.

Speaking to reporters ahead of the United Nations’ inaugural Nelson Mandela Peace summit, [Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto] said the meeting should be used to identify the factors that pose the biggest threat to global security and world peace.

On the topic of religious persecution, he called it “especially sad” that Christianity “has become the most persecuted religion in the world”.

The United Nations should provide “legal and security guarantees” to ensure that persecuted Christian communities could “return to their homelands of centuries”, he told MTI earlier that day, adding that Christianity “has become the most persecuted religion in the world” and argued that globally out of five people persecuted because of their religious beliefs, four were Christian.

But the world, he insisted, “turns its back on the problem because straightforward discourse on the situation of Christian communities is not compatible with hypocritical global politics”.
