“Hungary is a sold country” slogans they held a protest march in front
of Armenian Foreign affairs ministry and Hungarian consulate.
Among those who gathered in front of Foreign affairs ministry were
several people who arrived in Armenia from Hungary including famous
armenologist Sigmund Benedek.
“I am asking for forgiveness from the whole Armenian nation as well as
from the family of Gurgen Margaryan. I consider such behavior of
Hungarian Government as immoral against Armenian nation. Gurgen
Margaryan was murdered in result of crime committed against ethnic
identity. Extradition of Safarov is the great mistake of Hungarian
diplomacy: I will be the ambassador of Armenian opinion in Hungary”
mentioned Hungarian armenologist asking not to put parallels between
Hungarian nation and authorities.
“Hungarian nation is near Armenians and Armenia” he summarized.
