Bajnai backs US war plan for Afghanistan

Hungarian Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai said he supported President Barack Obama's war strategy for Afghanistan and the United States can continue to count on Hungary as a strong ally.

Bajnai said his country, which already has more than 300 troops in Afghanistan, will consider the US request for more troops, but a decision was not likely immediately.

For now, Hungary was committed to maintaining its existing troop numbers, he said. He said the allies could not risk failure and needed a long-lasting solution in Afghanistan.

This week the French Foreign Ministry said two detainees at Guantanamo were sent to France and to Hungary, part of a drive by Obama to close the widely criticized detention camp, created by his predecessor, George W. Bush, for terrorist suspects captured abroad. (Reuters)
