(ANSA) - BELGRADE, JUN 16 - When it comes to protecting our children, there's no question: We have zero tolerance for pedophiles and we also insist that educating children about sexual orientation must be protected as the sole right of parents," the International Communications Office of the Hungarian government said in a note and in a longer statement, titled "We're not going to apologize for protecting our children," published by the governmental portal About Hungary today.

The new law, passed yesterday, "will further strengthen the protection of children," the statement reads. The law "also prohibits homosexuality and gender reassignment to be displayed or promoted to minors and allows only registered NGOs to provide information on these subjects. Yes, we think this is necessary to protect children in their sexual development. We also believe that certain content should only be introduced at a suitable age in the interest of children's healthy psychological and mental development," Budapest noted. (ANSA).
