Hungary is over a thousand years old, and deserves respect as one of the oldest states in Europe, the foreign minister said in northern Hungary’s Eger, at the town’s celebration of the August 20 national holiday. “It is good to remind ourselves of that and also to remind those seeking to lecture us,” Péter Szijjártó said at the event.
