Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has held talks with Santiago Abascal, the leader of the largest Spanish conservative party Vox, in Budapest.
According to MTI, PM Orbán discussed with Abascal their common vision about Europe’s future, issues around protecting national sovereignty and families, and the protection of borders. They also discussed steps to be taken towards future cooperation of European conservative parties and joint action against the globalist Left.
Fidesz has close ties with Vox which is member of the European Parliament’s European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) group. At the meeting it was noted that Vox’s deputies have always stood up for Fidesz in Brussels.
It is noted that PM Orbán had discussed establishing a new European political alliance with Matteo Salvini, the head of Italy’s League party, and Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on November 3. The prime minister will pay a visit to Warsaw on December 3-4 at the invitation of Poland’s ruling PiS party to attend a meeting of representatives of European conservative parties that had signed a joint declaration on the future of the EU in July.
