Hungary’s PM Orban attends Summer University at Baile Tusnad: “Home in Transylvania”

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban will be attending the 26th edition of the Tusvanyos Summer University at Baile Tusnad, having already arrived in Romania.

On Saturday, he is scheduled to join FIDESZ MEP Tokes Laszlo in a debate to be moderated by Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Hungarian Parliament Nemeth Zsolt.

Orban posted a photo on social media of him on a terrace at Baile Tusnad with a girl, most probably his daughter, accompanied by a message in Hungarian: Erdelyben, otthon (e.n. -Home in Transylvania).

Local sources say that, as in the previous years, Orban will have a close-door meeting on Friday evening with national leader of the Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (UDMR) Kelemen Hunor to discuss issues facing the Hungarian community of Romania. Orban will also have a conversation with representatives of Hungarian communities from Ukraine, Croatia and Serbia attending the event at Baile Tusnad.

Invited to attend the 26th edition of the Summer University and Student Camp at Baile Tusnad are 200 lecturers, officials of the Budapest Government, specialists, professors, business people, researchers and diplomats, preponderantly from Hungary, but also from Romania.

Organisers are expecting the total number of participants to reach 45-50.000.

The event at Baile Tusnad is organised by the Pro Minority Foundation of Budapest and the Council of Romania’s Hungarian Youth, in partnership with several associations and foundations from Romania and Hungary, Agerpres informs.
