Furthermore, the Parliamentary State Secretary of the Ministry of Defence, Szilard Nemeth, handed over the 'Medal of Partnership' to the Commander.
General Vollmer also met the Chief of Defence, General Ferenc Korom, with regards to Hungarian NATO engagement.
Amongst other issues, topics touched on were readiness, interoperability, coordination and coherence as well as process synchronisation.
Travelling to Szekesfehervar, about 70 kilometers West of Budapest, the General engaged with the leadership of the newly implemented Multinational Division Center, led by Hungary and Croatia.
Additionally, General Vollmer’s itinerary saw him visit the NATO Force Integration Unit (NFIU) Hungary, where he took the opportunity to highlight the important role of this element as an initial point of contact for deploying Allied Forces.
The Commander underlined: “Hungary is an integral part of the Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan and I appreciate your contribution to strengthen NATO's presence on the North Eastern flank with the NATO Force Integration Unit and the implementation of the Multinational Division Center. This demonstrates a willingness to contribute to collective defence, one of NATO’s core tasks.”
