Viktor Orbán and François-Xavier Bellamy discussed European solutions to the novel coronavirus epidemic, the economic crisis and the challenge of mass migration.
Bellamy has arrived in Budapest to lead the web conference Europe without Censorship, organised by the Foundation for a Civic Hungary on Wednesday, the prime minister’s press chief told MTI. Orbán will participate in the conference alongside Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić and Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša, Bertalan Havasi said. Orbán and Bellamy discussed current European affairs, the European Union’s 2021-2027 financial framework, the bloc’s recovery package after the coronavirus pandemic, approaches to handling migration and the future of Christian democracy, the press chief said in a statement. The two politicians agreed that central Europe was gaining in importance within the bloc, and would play a vital role in the discourse on Europe’s future, the statement said. Wednesday’s conference will contribute to that, it added.
