Conference participants had the opportunity to talk face to face with Pope Francis said the press officer.

Earlier the day, the prime minister met several Christian leaders of the Middle East, among them Syrian Catholic, Maronite and Coptic religious leaders.

The main topic of discussion was the persecution of Christians in Syria that are the most vulnerable religious communities in the world today.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán made clear that Hungary takes action against the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, and is ready to support those defenseless communities as their very existence are threatened.
