During an officers' graduation ceremony at the National University of Public Service, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Hungarians need to rely on their country "because it is the homeland that protects us from all troubles and dangers".
“We must be strong, well-prepared and united because it is the only way to prevent us from the dangers our community faces and protect Hungarians’ peace and safety,” PM Orbán said. There are many dangers, with hundreds of thousands of migrants storming Hungary’s borders, western European cities being attacked by terrorists, a deadly virus threatening people in the past two years and most recently, a war starting in a neighbouring country, he said. The most important task of the state is to protect public order, PM Orbán said. Any government that is unable to guarantee the safety of life and property will lose the right to expect cooperation from citizens, he added.
In another development, the prime minister said that over the past thirty years, the lowest number of crimes were committed in Hungary during the past few years. Hungary has become one of the safest countries in Europe and Budapest one of the safest capitals, he added. In the upcoming decades, the order and safety of a country will represent the greatest advantage in international competition, he said.
