Novak: Border officers key to Hungarians’ safety

President Katalin Novak on Friday thanked border officers for their work, saying they guaranteed that Hungarians felt safe in their country.

Novak visited Bacsszentgyorgy, a village near Hungary’s southern border with Serbia, on the third day of her visit to Bacs-Kiskun County. She noted that the county had the longest border section with Serbia in Hungary: “Here, the border protects Europe itself, not only Hungary.”

Novak also visited a toy factory and Kiskoros, the town where 19th century reform poet Sandor Petofi was born.

In the evening she will host a gala dinner for the county’s officials, where she decorates Ibolya Szilagyi Szinger, the rector of the Eotvos Jozsef College, with the Order of Merit of Hungary, Knight’s Cross.
