The deputy state secretary in charge of security policy attends a NATO meeting in Bucharest.

"Hungary shares solidarity with countries in NATO's eastern flank concerning their worries about Russia but considers challenges from the south as equally important", a deputy state secretary in charge of security policy, Peter Siklosi told Hungarian news agency MTI by phone, citing instability in the Middle East and North Africa and the resulting interconnected threats of migration and terrorism as the main challenges.

He told MTI the regional meeting of defence ministers from the Baltic states, the Visegrad Group, Bulgaria and Romania is meant to pave the way for a NATO summit for heads of government and state to be held in Brussels in July. "We are united against challenges and NATO is clearly suitable and ready to protect member states," he said.
