PM Orbán Speaks to Le Pen About Closer Cooperation in EU’s Right-Wing

MTI-Hungary Today 2022.01.29.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has met Marine Le Pen to discuss forging closer cooperation between European right-wing forces.

Orbán met the French presidential candidate of the National Rally in Madrid on Saturday, the prime minister’s press chief, Bertalan Havasi, said in a statement.

The two politicians agreed that millions of European citizens who hold traditional Christian and national values have been left without proper political representation in the European Union. It would be essential, they added, for Europe’s right-wing parties to forge close cooperation.

They also discussed ways to continue building a European alliance of conservative parties, a process which began last summer.
