YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 1, ARMENPRESS: The activists of "Hayazn" and "Sargis Tkhruni" student union of Social Democrat Hunchakian Party put the flag of Hungary on the ground and threw coins on it meaning that Hungary was sold to Azerbaijan. After burning the flag the participants sang patriotic songs and jointly cried "Shame", "Death to the enemy".
Armenpress reports that with "Shame", "Death to the enemy" and "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.
