Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjártó has said mass immigration is creating “parallel societies” in Europe and undermining security, and that Christianity is more persecuted than any other religion.
“We are proud of having a very rich Christian heritage, and we want to preserve that,” the Hungarian politician explained in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor, Amanda House.
“That’s why we support Christian communities all over the world, because we take it as a matter of responsibility,” he continued, telling House that “Christianity is the most persecuted religion all over the world… look at [the] figures, it’s a fact.”
Szijjártó described how Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán has therefore created a state secretariat tasked exclusively with protecting Christian communities in places like Syria and Iraq.
“Bishops representing these churches come to us and ask us not to invite the members of their communities to come to Hungary, because if we do so then we will contribute to the elimination of those communities — which is basically the target of the terrorist organisations,” he explained.
“So, instead of encouraging them to leave, let’s help them to be able to stay.”
