Hungarian President Katalin Novák – as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces – received Romulusz Ruszin-Szendi, the Commander of the Hungarian Defense Forces at the Sándor Palace residence on Tuesday.
“Based on his quarterly report I am convinced that the Hungarian people are safe and that the Defense Forces are capable of performing their duties in an exemplary manner,” Katalin Novák wrote in a Facebook post, adding that Hungarian soldiers “are prepared for even the most unexpected situations.”
The President announced that on September 13, she will travel to Kosovo for a two-day visit where she will meet with Major General Ferenc Kajári, the Hungarian Commander of the KFOR mission, and the Hungarian soldiers currently serving abroad.
