Hungary's security will be number one priority during the holidays

György Bakondi said the government is continuously monitoring the Balkans route and the Hungarian borders.

Hungary’s chief security advisor has said security of the country will be the number one priority during the holiday season.

György Bakondi said the government is continuously monitoring the Balkans route and the Hungarian borders. He said this year the European migration situation has not abated, but has worsened compared with last year.

“We will not yield to any political pressure, we will continue to protect the Hungarian people’s security and the Hungarian border,” he said. He added that they will also protect Hungary from any planned relocation schemes which “have featured in a number of political statements in recent weeks”.

He pointed out that at the Hungarian border, the pressure of migration has increased significantly, by more than 200 percent, and therefore military and police forces will perform their duties in adequate numbers and with adequate technical support during the holidays.

Bakondi thanked the police officers and members of the military serving at the border, and reassured them that they will receive all necessary support.
