The Visegrád Group countries have made a joint declaration on stepping up defense cooperation.

Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia’s parliamentary defense committees signed the declaration in Budapest on Thursday.

Szilárd Németh, the Hungarian committee’s head, said the V4 should focus on increasing security and stability in the region, and serving peace and prosperity. He said that strengthening defense cooperation is a crucial condition for that.

Németh added that the four countries’ lawmakers agreed that migration is a harmful phenomenon and that they would make every possible effort to thwart its legalization.
