Germany has “many pro-Hungarian politicians” that share the Hungarian government’s position on such issues as migration, Katalin Novák, state secretary for family and youth affairs, said of her talks in Frankfurt. The Hungarian government believes that Europe “must be protected even if it comes to building border fences,” Novák said, adding that her government’s pro-family policies “offer an alternative to Europe against the pressure of mass migration”. The Hungarian government’s efforts to preserve Christian culture and its “commitment to Judeo-Christian roots” will contribute to making Europe stronger, she insisted.
Novák held talks with Lucia Putrich, European and federal affairs minister of the Hessen government, on challenges for the European Union and family policy issues. The state secretary also gave a lecture focusing on the Hungarian government’s family policies at an event organised by the Friedrich A. von Hayek Society.
