Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and the Government of Hungary strongly condemned the twin terror attacks at Coptic Christian Churches in Tanta and Alexandria, Egypt on Sunday, April 9 that killed 44 and injured hundreds more.

In a letter addressed to Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán offered his most sincere condolences to victims and the families of those affected by the terrorist attacks at the Coptic Orthodox Churches in Tanta and Alexandria, stating that "the obvious intention of this barbarous act was to undermine Egypt’s national unity."

In a separate letter to Pope Tawadros II, leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, the Prime Minister Orbán expressed Hungary’s solidarity with the Egyptian people following such barbarian acts of terrorism and stressed that the Budapest Government treats the protection of Christian communities in the Middle-East and in North-Africa as one of its most important priorities. The Prime Minister offered to provide medical assistance for those in need in the wake of the terrorist attacks against the Christian church.
