Hungarian FM Szijjarto becomes Lendava’s honorary resident

The city council of Lendava, a bilingual municipality on the border with Hungary, has honoured Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto by making him an honorary resident.


The proposal was adopted on Wednesday with an overwhelming majority, with only one councillor voting against and none wanting to debate the motion. Szijjarto has contributed the most to Hungary’s giving several million euros for the development of mixed-nationality areas populated by a Hungarian minority, Mayor Janez Magyar told the STA. Szijjarto is the second Hungarian foreign minister to be made an honorary resident of Lendava since his predecessor Janos Martonyi in 2014.
