V4 Report: Europe: Viktor Orban and Matteo Salvini meet in Milan, Italy for talks. Both were on target and are leading Europe in the right direction.
Salvini and Orbán said they are “walking down the same path” after discussing the formation of a common anti-migration front to oppose the migration agenda policies French president Emmanuel Macron.
“We want to change Europe’s commission. We want to protect our borders. We are going to fight pro-migrant policies supported by [Emmanuel] Macron and [George] Soros,” Salvini said.
“European elections are coming. We have to change a lot of things,” Orbán said on Tuesday. “There are two sides at the moment in Europe. One is led by Macron, who is supporting migration. The other one is supported by countries who want to protect their borders. Hungary and Italy belong to the latter.”
– However, unlike Macron, the Eurocrats and their useless Summits, these two leaders are men of vision and action. Both are relentless and determined to achieve their goals. Expect more results soon from this new partnership.
Despite their opponents in the media and Brussels, who are attempting to create false divisions between the two, Orban and Salvini will continue to build and strengthen their alliance.
** The Italian interior minister is “the first Mediterranean politician that seeks to stop migrants”, Prime Minister Viktor Orban told the press in Milan on Tuesday, adding that his government was in full support of those endeavors.
Orban said that cooperation had been “very bad” with Italy’s previous governments because those cabinets “had constantly been offending the Hungarians”.
Orban insisted that “Hungary is being attacked because it has proven that borders can be protected, while Brussels said that migrants cannot be stopped and must be allowed to enter”. He said it was Salvini’s mission to prove that illegal migrants can be stopped not only on land but also at sea.
The prime minister said that the policies of the EU, especially those of Germany, France, and Spain, are aimed at “better management of migration”, while the Visegrad countries want to stop illegal migration altogether.
Illegal migrants already in Europe should not be distributed among member states but turned back to their homelands, or else “the human smugglers have won” and “immigrants would keep coming in further waves,” Orban said.
After his talks with Salvini, Orban said that Europe’s security is dependent on the Italian minister’s success and insisted that Salvini “must not retreat”.
Hungary will provide Italy with all assistance to protect its borders, he added. He praised Salvini for supporting Hungary when the government faced many attacks in the European Parliament. Orban stressed that Salvini is a very respected politican in Hungary.
Salvini called Orban his friend and stressed that Hungary is an example for Italy also because of its economic policies.
Answering to a question, Orban said Hungary will help Italy to deport migrants back to Africa. “We should take them back instead of relocating them,” he stressed.
*** There are still major hurdles to overcome (in which we touch upon later) – not from Salvini – but from some other members of his government and Eurocrats in Brussels, who will seek to try to drive a wedge between the two. One can expect an aggressive campaign by Brussels to try to destroy them both.
However, this will fail. Both Orban and Salvini know the stakes and they realize that they will need each other to accomplish their goals.
