Hungarian foreign minister on Bin Laden's death

Foreign Minister Janos Martonyi says the killing of Osama bin Laden a major success, but has not ended terrorism and it is uncertain how people in the Arab world ireact. The U.S. Embassy in Budapest has received special protection.


“Osama bin Laden's death does not mean the end of the fight against terrorism,” Hungarian Foreign Minister János Martonyi said Monday morning in an interview with the Hungarian Radio. Still, the minister added, the American government has achieved considerable success in eliminating the terrorist leader.

He continued by saying that the question now is how the Islamic world in transition reacts to Bin Laden’s death, and whether the Islamic countries follow a moderate or radical stance in the future. "One of the greatest enemies of our civilization has fallen, this is good news, but you should prepare yourself for the management of the new situation," Martonyi emphasized.

The Hungarian Foreign Minister believes that the currently unstable situation is demonstrated by the fact that increased protection has been for United States embassies around the world.

Hungarian police also confirmed on Monday that the U.S. Embassy in Budapest receives special protection after the news about the death of Osama bin Laden. “With regard to the circumstances, Hungarian police took the necessary measures in the early hours on Monday to increase the security of buildings belonging to the foreign representation of the United states of America in Budapest,’ a police statement said.
