Chief security advisor says that the year ahead will be a critical one in terms of security

The prime minister’s chief security advisor has said that the year ahead will be a critical one in terms of security.

György Bakondi has said that while the security situation in Hungary improved over the course of 2017, it gradually deteriorated throughout the rest of Europe. Bakondi cited criminal and terrorist acts carried out on the continent as proof of his claim.

Bakondi said that the European Commission wanted to change legislation on the redistribution of migrants among member states without an upper limit by the summer.

He added that the continent’s migrant situation affects Europeans’ sense of security, along with their political positions, as evidenced by last year’s election results.

Bakondi said that looking back it can be said that Hungary’s analysis of the migrant situation was correct and realistic, as were the measures implemented by the government. The procedures undertaken by Hungary were lawful and the law enforcement developments necessary, he added.
