Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban meets Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz on 30 January, the Chancellor’s office confirmed to Austrian news agency APA on Tuesday.
According to the plans, Orban will also meet Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache. APA learnt that Kurz and Orban will discuss several “sensitive” topics too, like Austria’s appeal against the European Commission for supporting the Paks nuclear plant’s expansion, and Austria’s decision to cut benefits of EU workers.
The two leaders are much more likely to agree on migration, APA writes, adding that both Kurz and Orban support strict immigration policy and the protection of external borders. According to current information, no press conference is planned.
The Hungarian PM’s press chief, Bertalan Havasi confirmed to Hungarian news agency MTI earlier that the preparations of the visit are in progress. He said Orban meets Kurz and Strache separately and will meet other prominent Austrian public figures too.
