In recognition of his contribution as chairman of the Korea-Hungary Friendship Association

Roh Jae-heon, chairman of the Korea-Hungary Friendship Association, received a "Gold Cross Medal of Merit" from Hungarian President János Áder on Aug. 20.

Ambassador Mozes Csoma of Hungary to Korea gave it to Roh on behalf of the Hungarian President at the embassy's residence in Seoul. The Gold Cross Medal of Merit was awarded by Hungary to foreigners who contributed to the development of bilateral relations, and Roh was credited with establishing the Korea-Hungary Friendship Association.

Hungary, in particular, was the first country established by former President Roh Tae-woo, the father of Roh Jae-heon who promoted northern diplomacy in 1989, among Eastern European countries.

The association was established in 2019, the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and Hungary.

Chairman Roh Jae-heon said, "I was just trying to contribute to private diplomacy to continue my historic relationship with Hungary. It is an honor to receive such a great award."
