Orbán: NATO summit good news for Hungary

World

All decisions made at the NATO summit in Wales have greatly enhanced the military security of Hungary and Central Europe, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said at the recent summit. 

NATO leaders translated the alliance’s abstract security guarantees into “a language of practicalities”, meaning that all countries will develop military plans which will be implemented in the event that they are exposed to direct military threat, he said, adding this would boost NATO’s “eastern wing”.

Hungary and all member states have agreed to increase military spending, he noted at the summit, which he called “highly important for Hungary”. “The country’s security can only and exclusively be guaranteed within NATO,” Orbán said.

“All member states will increase their military spending and procure new technology, and NATO troops will appear in the central European region,” the prime minister noted, announcing that Hungary would upgrade its Pápa airbase that serves as a base for strategic cargo planes, and send troops to participate in the forthcoming military exercise in the Baltic states.
