Orbán: Hungary-Slovakia relations at high point

Hungary-Slovakia relations are at a high point as one backs the other in the European Union in economic and energy-security terms, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said after talks with Slovak counterpart Robert Fico on Tuesday.

Orbán told a joint press conference that the interests of Hungary and Slovakia were “at least 99 percent in the same direction”, and sovereignty was important for both countries.

“On Hungary’s part — and I sense identical feelings here — we are unhappy about Brussels’ initiatives for a super state; we are not at all happy about efforts to make illegal migration legitimate, and we want to protect our borders and have a say about who we allow to enter the country,” Orbán said.

He thanked Fico for Slovakia’s police presence at the southern borders of Hungary, and he said Hungary was glad to contribute to air policing in Slovakian air space.
