Prime Minister of Hungary and Chairman of Fidesz Viktor Orbán held a meeting at the Carmelite Monastery with Marine Le Pen, leader of the parliamentary group of the French National Rally party on Wednesday afternoon, the PM’s press chief Bertalan Havasi informed MTI.
During the meeting, the two leaders discussed the strengthening of the European Right, with a particular focus on next year’s European parliamentary elections. They emphasized the need for a united and robust response from the continent’s national conservative parties to Brussels’ imperial aspirations, misguided economic policies, and pro-migration initiatives.
The discussion also touched on the political representation of families, and national and Christian values, which are at the forefront of the activities of both the Hungarian government parties and the National Rally in France, Bertalan Havasi added.
In his social media post, the Hungarian Prime Minister referred to Le Pen as a ‘true patriot’ and urged for a leadership change within the European Union to address the issue of illegal migration.
Le Pen also took to X to comment on her meeting with the Hungarian premier:
In her post, the French politician expressed that ‘the migration pact, the Green Deal, the invasive European bureaucracy remain more than ever major concerns for the peoples and nations of Europe.’
