Defence Mininister calls for Hungarian-made equipment for army

The government is committed to ensuring Hungarian-made weapons from domestic suppliers to the Hungarian military, the defence minister said on Saturday, adding that meeting that goal was of strategic importance for the country's security.

Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky visited a shooting range at Taborfalva, in western Hungary, where hand guns and protective gear used by the police and the military were tested, and said on Facebook that the development of “guns, machine guns, light and submachine guns” had started.

“You need strength to make peace; we keep working,” the minister said.
