Budapest (MTI) – Around 50 Hungarian police officers will soon leave for Slovenia to take up duties connected with protecting the Slovenia-Croatia border, the government commissioner for domestic security said.
Gyorgy Bakondi told public television M1 on Saturday evening that a related interstate agreement between the countries’ respective heads of police is expected to be signed next week. The contingent of police together with logistics experts will leave for Slovenia shortly after.
The national police headquarters (ORFK) said on its website that the cooperation was based on an agreement between the Hungarian and Slovenian ministers of interior.
The prime minister, Viktor Orban, recently announced in Brussels that Hungary is ready to provide help to countries in the western Balkans that are affected by the migrant crisis.
