The Hungarian Defense Minister held talks with Norwegian Defense Minister Bjorn Arild Gram on a number of important issues. First and foremost, they discussed the development of Hungary’s air defense system, to which Norway contributes with the NASAMS missile system. Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky said that the delivery of the system and the training will be carried out as agreed, and expressed the hope that this cooperation will be followed by others in the future.

As reported by Hungary Today, Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky stressed that the war is seen from a different perspective by Hungarians living in the immediate neighborhood and with a significant national community in Ukraine, where not only Hungarian lives are being lost in the fighting. Hungary protects Hungarians, whether they live on the Hungarian or the Ukrainian side of the border, he said, adding that this is why the government does not provide weapons or ammunition to Ukraine and does not allow arms shipments and equipment to cross its borders into Ukraine. He stressed that Hungary has nevertheless condemned the war from the very beginning, stands by Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, and is helping the war-affected in the largest humanitarian operation in its history, both in Hungary and in Ukraine.
