The defence ministers of Hungary and Turkey discussed ways to strengthen cooperation between their respective countries on Thursday.
Mass illegal migration and the accompanying dangers including terrorism were highlighted topics at the talks, Hungary’s Istvan Simicsko told a press conference after the meeting. He expressed thanks to his counterpart for Turkey’s efforts to improve security in Europe and within that Hungary in recent years.
Turkey is looking after some four million migrants. Since the start of the crisis situation, around 270,000 Syrian children have been born in Turkey, he added.
Nurettin Canikli said Turkey supports Hungary’s position on illegal migration and will make every effort to reduce the pressure of migration on Hungary.
