Visegrád Four and Israel form a joint task force to fight terrorism

Prime Minsiter Viktor Orbán announced that the parties will also establish a joint task force to promote technological cooperation

The Visegrad Group of countries has formed an alliance with Israel to help combat terrorism.

Following a summit in Budapest on Wednesday, a joint task force will be created between the five nations to fight global terrorism and other important issues.

Prime Minsiter Viktor Orbán announced that the parties will also establish a joint task force to promote technological cooperation.

PM Orbán revealed that the Israeli prime minister had invited the V4 prime ministers to Israel, and that they had accepted his invitation.

As we reported in another item today, the prime minister urged that relations between Israel and the European Union should be characterized by rationality, and that criticism of Israel should be replaced by an opening of the gates to cooperation.

The prime minister stressed that the Visegrád Group will urge the EU to appreciate the efforts made by Israel in the interest of its region’s stability, as these efforts are also in Europe’s best interests, given that they protect the continent against migrant invasions.

PM Orbán stated that the Visegrád countries share Israel’s standpoint that defense of external borders is crucial for every nation. He added that the free flow of people without any checks or controls heightens the risk of terrorism.
