In Warsaw on Monday, on his first official visit abroad after taking his prime-ministerial oath last week, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that the Hungarian and Polish peoples are not only bound together by a shared past, but also by a shared future: not only by a tested, one-thousand-year friendship, but also by their joint vision of the future, Kormany.hu reports.

At a joint press conference held after his meeting with his Polish counterpart Mateusz Morawiecki, the Prime Minister highlighted that they both want a strong Europe, they want to take part in the reforms and debates which improve and strengthen Europe, and they want peaceful development.

He added that they also discussed some difficult issues, including migration. He said that the latter is not a tactical issue, as the question of who decides on who can live in a country’s territory is the most important principle of national sovereignty. He observed that earlier generations "would turn in their graves” if others were allowed to make that decision instead of Hungarians.
