FM Szijjártó: Increasing Engagement Against Islamic State
NATO will step up its engagement in the fight against the Islamic State terrorist organisation with a focus on training, Péter Szijjártó, the foreign minister, said after meeting NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Thursday.

Szijjártó told MTI that Stoltenberg had expressed his appreciation for Hungary’s role in the organisation.

Hungary has deployed 200 soldiers in the international coalition fighting IS, some of whom are carrying out training, he noted.

Szijjártó said that at a meeting of NATO foreign ministers on Friday, the NATO-Ukraine ministerial committee would not be taking place due to Hungary’s veto.
