Navracsics, who is also the Minister of Public Administration and Justice, visited the Holocaust Museum on Tuesday and attended an award ceremony at the Lantos Human Rights Commission. He met Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Phil Gordon and Democrat Senator Ben Cardin, the chair of the Helsinki Commission.
Navracsics told the paper that he discussed with Gordon the situation of Central Europe in general, with special respect to Hungary. At the meeting with Cardin, more specific issues were also brought up, such as anti-Semitism and anti-Roma sentiments in Hungary.
“I told the Senator that these are not more prevalent in Hungary than in other countries of the region and that the Hungarian government is resolutely against racism and anti-Semitism,” Navracsics said.
Navracsics started his three-day official visit in the US on Monday. His programme includes meetings as well as several presentations.
