Hungary stands for peace, but we must keep our powder dry
On Monday in Székesfehérvár, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán visited the Defence Forces General Staff Joint Forces Command Centre to inform himself about the defence capabilities of the Hungarian Defence Forces, Bertalan Havasi, the Prime Minister’s press chief informed the Hungarian news agency MTI.
Defence Minister Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky reported to the Prime Minister about the progress of the Defence and Armed Forces Development Programme, the status of the training of personnel forming part of the programme, and the results of the enhancement of capabilities ordered in the summer, Mr Havasi reported.
Before an audience of military leaders, Mr Orbán repeatedly pointed out that in the present era of threats, the government’s most important goal was to defend Hungary, and so the development of the defence forces and the defence industry could not slow down even despite the European economic crisis caused by the sanctions. We Hungarians stand for peace, but must keep our powder dry, he said.
