“It has become clear for everybody that Europe has been living in the shadows of the most serious terror threat of all times,” the Hungarian foreign minister told the news agency. He added that IS destabilized the southern neighbors of Europe, forcing millions to flee, who have been heading to Europe.

“Our task is clear: if we want to retain the security of Europe, there is nothing else to do but finally defeat the Islamic State terror organization”, the Hungarian foreign minister stressed.
