“The Croatian and Hungarian ministers of defence, Damir Krstičević and Istvan Simicsko, agreed in Budapest to bring their respective military and defence industries closer together.

The two ministers agreed to conduct joint training and participate side by side at international military exercises—especially special forces, the air force, and the army.

It was also announced that, in the near future, three agreements would be signed: protecting their mutual airspace, air rescues, and exchanging radar data.

Krstičević and Simicsco said that status reports on the improvements would be conducted every six months.

‘The Croatian army was forged in war. We have enormous experience and knowledge. The Hungarian army also has lots of experience and knowledge. Our task is to exchange the lessons we have both learned, with the goal of improving our respective armies and to ensure peace and security within our territories,’ explained Krstičević.” (Voice of Croatia)
