The two Nobel Prizes won earlier this month by Hungarian scientists Katalin Karikó and Ferenc Krausz, respectively, are a "great honor" for Hungary, President Katalin Novák said in an interview with local news site feol.hu following her visit to Fejér County earlier this week.
"Let us celebrate together that two exceptional Hungarians have achieved such major recognition to the greatest joy and pride of the entire nation," Novák said.
One Nobel laureate is already something to be immensely proud of, "but to have two at the same time is an outright miracle," the president said.
The residents of central Hungary's Fejer County can be especially proud to give the nation a Nobel laureate in the person of physicist Ferenc Krausz, she added.
