Hungary also offers to help save the cross on Pope John Paul II statue in France

“The Hungarian Government is willing to pay any expenses that arise and undertake the administrative burdens in the interests of enabling the cross that is condemned to be removed from the statue of Pope John Paul II in the town of Ploërmel to be transported to Hungary, if the leaders of the French settlement consent to it”, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó announced at a press conference in Budapest on Thursday.

Mr. Szijjártó told reporters that the Ministry had contacted the local government of the small town in Brittany via the Hungarian Embassy in Paris, but had received no reply so far, adding that the cross would be received by the Saint Benedict Secondary and High School.

The Polish Prime Minister also proposed to transport the cross to Poland to “save it from political correctness censorship”.
