The ministries of defence of Hungary and Poland signed a bilateral military cooperation agreement on 19 January in Budapest. On behalf of the Hungarian side, Colonel László Hajnik, Head of Department for International Cooperation, Ministry of Defence, and, on behalf of the Polish side, Polish Defence Attaché Colonel Tomasz Trzciński signed the agreement of cooperation.
Hungary considers Poland as a designated strategic partner, a proof of which is the signing of the present robust cooperation plan. The close defence-military relations between the two countries are characterized by balance and active cooperation, as they are built on historical ties, the two nations’ solidarity towards each other, friendly relationships between state and military leaders as well as on the protection of one another’s interests on an international level.
Altogether 71 concrete bilateral cooperation programs are scheduled to be implemented in the year 2022: 34 of them in the area of Hungary, and 37 in the area of Poland, among them joint training events and exercises as well as historical and tradition-preserving tasks.
By signing the cooperation agreement, the defence policy and military relations between the two countries continue to exist on the same high level as before.
