Security is fundamental in areas with a lot of people, especially after the terrorist attack in Nice, defence ministry state secretary Tamás Vargha told public news channel M1.
People should therefore not take these increased security measures as restrictions of their personal freedoms, he added. Vargha said there was no need to raise the terror alert level but underlined the need to be cautious during the celebrations.
Police presence will be increased both at commemoration venues and along the routes leading to the various events, he added.
