PARLT SPEAKER: 1921 'CREATED FOUNDATIONS OF HUNGARIAN STATE'S REBIRTH'

 

László Kövér, the speaker of parliament, on Wednesday said in a message that the year 1921, the first year of then Prime Minister István Bethlen’s tenure, “created the foundations of the rebirth of the Hungarian state and a national revival,” at a conference organised by the Parliamentary Office.
In his address read out at the conference, Kövér noted that the Parliamentary Office had decided four years ago to launch a series of conferences on the “pivotal, tragic years of Hungarian history”. Between the autumn of 1918 and the summer of 1920, Hungary was “subject to an attempt to annihilate it”, Kövér said, referring to the Trianon Treaty after the first world war.
