At an inauguration ceremony on Saturday, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that "we are ahead of times when weak nations will disappear and strong ones will survive, therefore we must strengthen our defense lines and law-enforcement organizations every day.".
“We are in times when the world’s foundations are shaking … with the global earthquake’s epicentre being right next door,” PM Orbán said, referring to the war in Ukraine, adding that Hungary was also “under siege” by illegal migrants in the south. “We need a strong country, strong government, strong economy, strong armed forces, and last but not least strong law enforcement,” he told before young police officers at the National Public Service University. At the event, held in front of the university’s historical building, PM Orbán said it was a symbol, that of “faithfulness to the homeland, serving the nation, responsibility for the community, the realisation that the strong have an obligation to save those weaker.” “We need strong people because the truth is worth little without power.” Referring to young people choosing a career in law enforcement, PM Orbán said their choice was a “declaration of their Hungarian identity”. “They will serve the peace and security of the Hungarian nation … protect the weak and the vulnerable, and stop those that jeopardise Hungary’s peace and security.”
