The heads of Christian Churches from Syria had the opportunity to present today in Budapest the existing situation, which the Christian population of the Middle East face, where they held a meeting with President of Russia Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orbán.
“We are politicians and we want to ask you what we need to do in order to help this area and what your needs are which must be addressed,” the Hungarian prime minister, who initiated the meeting, told the church leaders.
The Russian President stressed the commitment of Russia to the war on terror aiming at restoring peace and stability in the region. He noted that “despite the fact that the Middle East is the cradle of Christianity, we now see the very difficult situation in which Christians find themselves.”
In their private meeting, the two leaders discussed energy issues.
Hungary has recently come very close to Russia, an event which causes concern among its partners within the European Union.
