Hungarian police will continue to help protect the borders of Europe by dispatching new contingents to North Macedonia and Serbia, the national police headquarters (ORFK) said on Tuesday.
A 29-member unit set off to North Macedonia and a 10-member contingent to southern neighbour Serbia at a ceremony in Budapest.
The police officers will be tasked with patrolling the two countries’ borders and helping to arrest people smugglers and illegal migrants. Some of the Hungarian officers will be posted in the inner parts of those countries to patrol roads, ORFK said.
The contingents will be equipped with vehicles, night vision equipment and mobile heat cameras.
