Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met Argentina’s new president Javier Milei for bilateral talks in Buenos Aires late on Saturday.
The prime minister’s press chief said the talks focused on political cooperation “in the interest of more effective fight against international leftist forces” as well as opportunities to further develop bilateral ties, Bertalan Havasi said in a statement. Orbán congratulated Milei on his election victory and invited him to pay an official visit to Hungary. Earlier on Saturday, the prime minister held talks with former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro in the Argentinian capital. Their talks focused on the international cooperation of conservative parties, Havasi told MTI. Orbán wished Bolsonaro much success in the Brazilian municipal elections next year while the former president wished Orbán success in the upcoming EP and Hungarian local elections. Meanwhile, Orbán held bilateral talks with Santiago Abascal, the head of Spain’s VOX party. The talks focused on cooperation ahead of next year’s EP elections and efforts to protect national sovereignty. The Hungarian prime minister also met Argentinian members of the International Catholic Lawmakers’ Network (ICLN).
