The values and the culture of the European people must be preserved in Europe, and the interests of the European countries must be protected – the Minister of Defence Dr. Tibor Benkő told the MTI late at night on Wednesday, 10th October in Zagreb. The Minister arrived in the Croatian capital at the invitation of the Croatian Minister of Defence Damir Krstičević for a two-day official visit.
“Suffice to think about the Western Balkans, where peace is so fragile, or about the illegal migration and to consider also the common historic past of Croatia and Hungary, and how our predecessors, our ancestors, struggled, fought for freedom, and then we will understand why these meetings are vital" – Dr. Tibor Benkő pointed out.
The Minister has indicated that they will talk with his Croatian colleague about their common responsibilities, such as the airspace surveillance in the common NATO airspace, furthermore about the co-ordination of the search and rescue tasks in case of aerial reconnaissance in a disaster or accident situation, and about sharing radar information.
On Wednesday, the two Ministers laid wreaths at the Memorial Plaque erected this year in April, in the Central Zabreb Mirogoj Cemetery, in honour of the 450 Hungarian soldiers, who died a hero’s death in World War I. In the evening the bronze bust of St. Ladislaus was inaugurated in the residence of the Hungarian Embassy in Zagreb. Hungarian King László I, later King of Croatia was praised in the festive speeches of both Ministers. King St Ladislaus founded the Diocese of Zagreb in 1091. His robe and his relic, a piece of his hand bone are safeguarded in the Cathedral of Zabreb.
