JUSTICE MINISTER: RESPECTING NATIONAL TRADITIONS IMPORTANT FOR HUNGARY'S COE PRESIDENCY

 

A key principle of Hungary’s six-month Council of Europe (CoE) presidency starting in May will be respect for national traditions, Justice Minister Judit Varga said after talks with senior CoE officials.
In addition to maintaining dialogue on human rights, democracy and rule of law which constitute the CoE’s basic activities, the programme for the Hungarian presidency will also include protecting national minorities and families, promoting dialogue between religions, and addressing the challenges of artificial intelligence, cybercrime and environmental protection, Varga told MTI over the phone from Strasbourg.
“The Hungarian presidency will offer an opportunity for representing European values that are important to Hungarians, including the protection of national minorities,” she said.
