The non-representative survey showed only 35 percent supported Hungary’s participation in the mission in Afghanistan. Forty-three percent of respondents said Hungary’s participation weakened the country’s security.
Hungary has participated in the mission in Afghanistan since 2003, but it took on a bigger role from 2006. Since then, four Hungarian soldiers have died there.
Two-thirds of those surveyed said the information the government provided on Hungarian soldiers in Afghanistan was insufficient.
The survey was of 556 regular internet users 18 and older.
