Army leaders attending a meeting of Visegrad Group chiefs of staff discussed current issues in cooperation between national armies on Tuesday, the Hungarian chief of staff said on Tuesday. Romulusz Ruszin-Szendi said Ukraine’s chief of staff was also invited but the war situation prevented him from travelling to Debrecen for the meeting. Poland’s chief of staff was also not in attendance, he added. “In the current situation, national interests may have priority,” Ruszin-Szendi said. The Czech, Slovak and Hungarian army leaders attending the meeting reviewed the situation that has developed in light of the war in Ukraine and tasks resulting from the European Union battlegroup entering service next year, he added.
