Orbán to meet UK’s Prime Minister May next week

Buzzfeed is reporting that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will be in London next week to meet his counterpart in the UK, Theresa May, after the latter returns from a trip to India.

“Orbán’s visit will fuel accusations from a number of EU and European officials that Britain is building an alliance with Hungary’s right-wing leader in an attempt to divide and conquer the EU in Brexit negotiations.

He is viewed as a controversial ally for Britain because of his government’s stance on refugees, an alleged crackdown on freedom of speech, and tensions with other governments and the EU over the balance of powers between Europe’s institutions and its member states,” the site writes.

Buzzfeed also notes that Mr. Orbán was one of the few leaders to praise Prime Minister May at an EU Council Summit in Brussels last month.
