During his visit to Hungary, LTG von Sandrart met with the personnel of Headquarters Multinational Division Centre and NATO Force Integration Unit Hungary. The NFIU Commander, COL Topor, introduced von Sandrart to the unit's current activities. "If there were no NFIUs, one would have to invent them. They are the spider in the web," the MNC NE Commander stated, emphasizing the crucial role which these units play in NATO's efforts to enhance the collective security of the Alliance. On the occasion, LTG von Sandrart received briefings by the HDF military experts about the aims, status and results of the HDF modernization programme, and was updated on the NATO battlegroup in Hungary.
At NFIU Hungary, the Corps Commander awarded his commendations to the selected personnel, and addressed the NFIU service members: "NFIU Hungary accomplishes its mission to strengthen NATO's security—now and in the future—with great determination and success."
