Following the terrorist attack in Strasbourg, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has written a letter on behalf of the Hungarian people to President of France Emmanuel Macron, offering condolences to the families of the victims and wishing a swift recovery for those who were injured.

The Prime Minister wrote that it is his conviction that the perpetrators targeted not only France and the French people, but also the European and Christian culture which forms the basis for the unity of the continent.

Mr. Orbán reassured President Macron that Hungary and the Hungarian people stand by France during these difficult hours, and that the French can continue to rely on Hungary’s support in defending the borders and the security of the continent.
