In a keynote address to the 9th Budapest Human Rights Forum, Hungary’s foreign minister, Péter Szijjártó, said that as a member of the UN Human Rights Council, Hungary would not allow any country to be “smeared” for supposed democratic or human rights deficits.

What discredits the fight for human rights is using human rights groups to smear other countries for political gain, he said.

Hungary considers respect for minority rights to be a key precondition for international peace and security and will devote close attention to this as a member of the Human Rights Council, he said.

Hungary’s other important mission will be the protection of Christians, Szijjártó said, arguing that the world should no longer view anti-Christian sentiment as an “acceptable prejudice”.

The persecution of Christians is no less of a crime than discrimination against any religious or minority group, he said.
