Viktor Orbán traveled to Warsaw to meet with leaders of European parties that have a similar political outlook to Fidesz, the ruling party in Hungary.

Leaders of 12 parties are meeting here, intending to give voice to the many tens of millions of people who are European citizens but feel they are not being represented at the moment

-said the Hungarian Prime Minister about the meeting.

“We don’t want immigration, but do want family and children to come first. We want to change the policies in Brussels, and have been preparing to create a strong and influential party alliance for several months now,” said Orbán. “I hope to take an important step in that direction today and tomorrow.”

Bertalan Havasi, head of the Prime Minister’s Press Office, had previously announced that Viktor Orbán would be attending a working meeting of European conservative party leaders in Warsaw.

Havasi told state news agency MTI on Friday night that Viktor Orbán had had a face-to-face meeting with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki at the start of the program, followed by a working dinner for European party leaders.
