Hungarian right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that he must oppose French leader Emmanuel Macron, calling him a key player in EU pro-immigrant agenda. Both nations’ futures are at stake, he added.
Responding to a question from Le Monde at a press event in Budapest on Thursday, the Hungarian PM said that he has “good relations” with Macron, but when it comes to views of migration, the two are bitter rivals.
“It is nothing personal, but a matter of our countries’ futures,” Orban noted.
If what he wants with regards to migration materializes in Europe, that would be bad for Hungary, therefore I must fight him.
Emmanuel Macron is “the leader of the pro-immigration forces” in the EU, the prime minister explained.
