Deputy House Speaker Sandor Lezsak welcomed in Parliament a hundred guests participating at the “Kurultaj Tribal Convention of Hun and Turk identity nations” in Bugac (C) over the weekend.
The outdoor event will be attended by traditional folk groups from 24 nations, including Bulgaria, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Chechnya and Dagestan.
Government commissioner Erno Keskeny said organising the Kurultaj event was in line with Hungary’s new foreign policy of opening to the East. He said the three-day programme may reach as many as 140 million people around the world.
The Kurultaj is expected to attract several thousand spectators this year.
