Hungary to send biological weapons detection lab to Beijing Olympics

Parliament

Hungary's army is sending a mobile biological laboratory to China to be used throughout the Beijing Olympics, said Defence Minister Imre Szekeres on Friday after meeting his Chinese counterpart in Budapest. The NATO-approved lab, designed to detect the agents in a biological terrorist attack, has already been deployed once -- during the Athens Olympics in 2004. Cao Gangchuan told Szekeres that China was keen on developing bi-lateral relations. He noted that Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány had reinforced the message that Hungary considers the People's Republic the only Chinese republic. (Mti)
