Defence Minister: Hungary ‘living era of dangers due to others’ bad decisions’

Hungary's defence minister said Hungary was living in an "era of dangers due to the bad decisions of others", in a video posted on Facebook on Wednesday.

The year 2023 had brought wars, migration, the threat of terror and “explosive social tensions” to Europe, Kristof Salay-Bobrovniczky said.

“Bad decisions such as endless weapon deliveries, encouraging and financing migration, and the tensions, security risks and terror threat brought on by immigration impact Hungary too,” he said.

While Hungary doesn’t participate in the war, it will prepare to strengthen its defence capabilities to protect its peace and security, Szalay-Bobrovniczky said. Besides building a “high-tech Armed Forces”, that includes developing the country’s military industry, he added.

“We will protect our sovereignty from those expecting us to hand over the decisions on the fate of Hungarians,” he said.
