Defence Ministry state secretary Szilárd Németh told a press conference at the air base of Kecskemét, in central Hungary, that the Hungarian army and the defence ministry have taken the necessary steps to guarantee the safety of Hungarian soldiers following missile attacks against US and NATO bases in Erbil and al-Asad, in Iraq. Preparations have been made for all scenarios in the wake of the attacks, he said. Nearly 200 Hungarians serve in Erbil but none of them were hurt in the attacks, Németh added. Constant live communications are maintained with the commanders of the Iraqi operations, and constant information is being received and analysed with the involvement of the foreign ministry, he said.
