Parliament on Monday approved a Hungarian military mission to Chad, with up to 200 soldiers scheduled to serve from spring next year. MPs voted with 143 for, 30 against and two abstentions. The mission will underpin efforts to promote international peace and security as well as the fight against terrorism. Also, the aim is to undergird the stability of the Sahel region with a view to curbing illegal migration pressure on Europe. The mission is in response to an invitation by Chad’s president for Hungarian soldiers to be stationed there until Dec 31, 2025.
