“I am proud of you, as it has once again been proved that the Hungarian peacekeepers perform their work with discipline, on good professional level and in excellent co-operation with the soldiers of other countries.” The homecoming members of the 43rd rotation of the Hungarian Contingent of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP-HUNCON) were welcomed with these words by Major General Zoltán Mihócza, the acting Commander of the HDF Joint Force Command (HDF JFC), on Wednesday, 3rd October, in Székesfehérvár.
The Hungarian Defence Forces (HDF) have been participating in the modern age peace-keeping since 1993. Under the leadership of nineteen Contingent Commanders more than two thousand Hungarian soldiers and policemen took part in peacekeeping, but this period has now been closed. The Hungarian Contingent of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP-HUNCON) finished its service after 23 years, on 31st of August, 2018, in the island-country.
At the end of his speech he spoke to the relatives of the soldiers returning from mission: “I know that behind every soldier there is a family, friends, colleagues and through them the whole Hungarian society. We, together, jointly assumed the responsibility for preserving and consolidating peace all over the world. As part of this process, each of you contributed to this noble but very hard mission" – the Major General expressed his thankfulness.
On behalf of the Székesfehérvár soldiers, who had served in Cyprus, Lieutenant Colonel Ferenc Kozula, the Commander of the Contingent handed over the symbols of the mission to the Mayor of Székesfehérvár, thanking that the town hosted the event. The colours of the Contingent was donated to the Pákozd Military Memorial Park so that the heritage of Cyprus of the Hungarian soldiers would live on at the banks of the Lake Velence among the Pákozd Hills.
The solemn march and the official hymn of the United Nations was accompanied by the orchestra of the Fricsay Richárd-Prize winner HDF 43rd “Nagysándor József" Signal and Command Support Regiment conducted by Major Tamás Ruff.
