Orban: Hungary Must Be Left Out of This Conflict

Prime Minister Viktor Orban paid a visit to the Hungarian Defence Forces Integrated Operations Centre.

Together with Defence Minister Tibor Benko  he met with officers who guarantee Hungary’s security with their work  as commanders, Bertalan Havasi the head of the Press Office of the Prime  Minister told the Hungarian news agency MTI.

After the visit, the prime minister said  the situation continuous to remain serious and tense, and we must do  everything we can to avoid a war. Hungary must be left out of this  military conflict; Hungary’s security is the number one priority, he  pointed out.

Accordingly, Orban rejected proposals from the Left urging the government to send troops and weapons to Ukraine.

In the video of the visit which was posted  on Orban’s social media account, he stressed that Hungary must  undertake a role in the international efforts that are being made to  restore peace, and in the meantime the army must prepare for the  eventuality that should things take a turn for the worse and refugees  arrive, the army, in cooperation with the police, should be able to  handle the situation.

In conclusion, Orban said “today I came away with the impression that we are able to do that, Hungary’s security is in good hands."

On Thursday, Orban will travel to Brussels  where an emergency summit will be held for the European Union’s heads  of state and government regarding the Russia-Ukraine crisis, Havasi informed MTI. President of the European Council Charles Michel convened  the meeting for eight o’clock on Thursday evening.
