Tristan Azbej delivered a speech on the IRFS in Washington yesterday
On Thursday, the 15th of July, Tristan Azbej, Secretary of State for the Aid of Persecuted Christians and for the Hungary Helps Program, delivered a speech at the International Religious Freedom Summit in Washington.
As reported earlier, the International Religious Freedom Summit in Washington took place between the 13th and the 15th of July for the fourth time in a row. Yesterday, on the 15th of July, State Secretary Tristan Azbej delivered a speech in which he highlighted that Christian persecution is one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our society.
Tristan Azbej negotiated the extension and prolongation of the bilateral cooperation with his American partners, signed in 2018 between the Hungary Helps Program and USAID. In the framework of this cooperation, the Hungarian and American governmental organisations provided aid to the persecuted Christians and the members of the Yazidi community in Iraq.
The main question of the appointment was the extension of this cooperation to the African continent and to the aid of Christian girls and women exposed to violence. Azbaj also gave an interview to Newsmax, the greatest conservative news channel of America. In the interview, he also talked about the Hungarian child protection law and about fake news circulating about the law in the international media. He also explained how Hungary is fighting against attacks on children.
