No security in Hungary without Türkiye: PM Orban

Hungary's Prime Minister Victor Orban hailed Türkiye's global role and said there would be no security in his country without Türkiye.

Orban said Türkiye is the only country that has achieved results in efforts concerning the Russia-Ukraine war through the grain deal it helped broker last year.

"We have advanced the Türkiye-Hungary relationship to the level of enhanced strategic partnership. I don't know if there is anything beyond this in diplomatic terms. I believe this is the strongest in terms of friendship and brotherhood," Orban said in a joint news conference with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in the Hungarian capital Budapest.

The remarks came after the sixth meeting of the Türkiye-Hungary High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council held at the Carmelite Monastery.

Orban also emphasized that without Türkiye, Hungary had no security.

Emphasizing the significance of bilateral relations, Orban said Erdoğan presented a monumental project for the next century.

"The coming century will be yours (Türkiye's). We believe in this and made agreements," he said.
