Christian culture is a treasure and it needs to be preserved, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday at the conference of Centrist Democrat International (CDI), an international political group dedicated to the promotion of Christian Democrat values.

This is important because the search for identity is in the center of political debate everywhere in the world, especially in Europe where migration has further intensified the issue, he added.
