The representative of Hungary in Ramalla of Palestine Dr. Csaba Rada visited the Patriarchate on Friday 2nd /15th December 2017.
His Excellency the representative of Hungary was received by H.H.B. our Father and Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos and Hagiotaphite Fathers.
In this meeting there was an interesting conversation on the reconciliation work of the Patriarchate with the co-operation of the other Local Christian Churches, especially in the recent tension in Jerusalem and the occupied areas.
Moreover reference was made on the long term co-operation between the Patriarchate and Hungary. Fruits of this co-operation were; the two visits of His Beatitude in Hungary; the financial support of Hungary in the restoration projects of the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem and the Sacred Edicule of the Holy Tomb; the scholarship funds to members of the Arab-speaking congregation; the intention of Hungary to continue its support and protection to the needy Christians of the Middle East.
There was a mutual interest and intention for the continuation of this beneficial co-operation.
