Orbán meets Fratelli d’Italia leader in Rome

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has met Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the Fratelli d'Italia party, to discuss the situation of the European right and the increasing threat of migration, the prime minister's press chief said on Saturday.

At the meeting in Rome, Orbán and Meloni agreed that one of their main aims was to restore the European right’s position as the greatest political force in Europe, Bertalan Havasi said.

Orbán and Meloni also discussed the collapse of the system in Afghanistan and a growing migration pressure it is anticipated to trigger. Rather than accepting masses of migrants, the solution would be to provide aid locally, the two politicians agreed. European countries will have to withstand growing migration pressure from multiple directions, they warned.

Katalin Novak, the minister without portfolio for family affairs and Hungary’s ruling Fidesz’s deputy head in charge of international affairs, also attended the meeting, Havasi said.
