Hungary begins building fence on border

Jul 13, 2015 12:00 AM

Construction of the temporary technical border defense installation began near Mórahalom in southeast Hungary on Monday, MTI reported.

The work is being done by soldiers from nearby barracks, and the machinery used is also army-owned.

How it began
Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó announced on June 17 that the government has ordered Interior Minister Sándor Pintér to make preparations for closing off a 175-km section of Hungary’s border with Serbia using a four-meter high fence.

Parliament amended the act on national borders on July 6 in preparation for the construction, granting the Hungarian state right of use for a 10-meter ribbon of land along the country’s outside borders as per the Schengen treaty. The government has reallocated HUF 6.6 bn for building the fence.
