Hungarian government: No plan to heighten terror alert
Budapest, July 24 (MTI) – The Hungarian authorities have assessed the security situation in light of the Nice terrorist attack and Munich shootings and concluded that there are no direct threats to Hungarian internal security, the government’s security advisor György Bakondi said on Sunday, adding that there is no need to raise the terror alert level.
At the same time, the authorities are “working intensively with international organisations,” Bakondi said in an interview to public radio.
Migration pressure on the Hungary-Serbia border is “intense”, and although the so-called Balkan route has been shut down, people smugglers are looking for new routes from two directions, from Turkey and Bulgaria and from Macedonia.
