The defence ministers of Hungary and the Czech Republic met in Budapest on Friday to discuss cooperation between the two countries' armed forces. Tibor Benko said military capability development and the general security environment were also topics of discussion. The need for security in Europe is intensifying, and Visegrad Group cooperation would address one aspect of this need, he added. They agreed that both countries have the same views on how changes have taken place in Europe in respect of challenges, risks and threats, as well as the general public's sense of security.
