Hungarians need their country “because it is the homeland that protects us from all troubles and dangers” Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Satuday at an officers’ graduation ceremony at the National University Of Public Service.

“We must be strong, well-prepared and united because it is the only way to protect us from the dangers that our community faces, and in order to protect Hungarians’ peace and safety,” Orbán emphasized.

There are many dangers, with hundreds of thousands of migrants storming Hungary’s borders, Western European cities being attacked by terrorists, a deadly virus threatening people in the past two years and most recently, a war starting in a neighboring country, he said.

Over the past thirty years, the lowest number of crimes were committed in Hungary during the past few years, he noted. Hungary has become one of the safest countries in Europe and Budapest one of the safest capitals, the Prime Minister added.

In the upcoming decades, the order and safety of a country will represent the greatest advantage in international competition, he said.

“The value of safety is continually growing, while order and security represent Hungary’s best currency.”

According to Viktor Orbán, the war in Ukraine shows that one must prepare for all possible scenarios.

He told the graduates that Hungary’s government is offering increasingly favorable conditions to people working in law enforcement. Respect for them is growing as their capabilities and their level of preparedness are also on the increase, the Prime Minister added.
