Plans are for the Hungarian troops to deliver non-perishable food supplies and medicine to flooded areas within a 100km radius of the Slovenj Gradec airport in northern Slovenia, the ministry cited Colonel Tamas Bali, the commander in charge of the operation, as saying.

The two H145 helicopters can deliver some 700kg of food in one pass to those in need, the statement said.

The Hungarian Armed Forces are cooperating in their relief mission with the Slovenian authorities, Bali added.
