There is no need for a military build-up at the eastern borders of NATO, Minister of Foreign Affairs János Martonyi said at the opening of the GLOBSEC 2014 international security conference which started in Bratislava 14 May 2014.

The current situation in Ukraine was in focus of the conference in light of “the deep changes in the security situation,” Minister Martonyi said in his opening speech.

“We don't think that a military build-up is needed in this situation, (...) the right decisions will be made at the right time,” he told reporters.

Participation at the three-day forum includes prime ministers of the Visegrád group of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, the NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and twenty ministers from other countries.
