Prime Minister Viktor Orban expressed his appreciation in a letter to Matteo Salvini, head of Italy’s League party, and thanked him for his efforts “benefitting Italy and the whole of Europe including Hungary”, the prime minister’s press chief said on Thursday.
“I wish to assure you that we Hungarians will never forget that you were the first Western European leader who sought to stop the influx of illegal migrants into Europe across the Mediterranean.”
In his letter to Salvini, the Hungarian prime minister continued:
“Regardless of internal political developments in Italy and the fact that we belong to different European party families, we look upon you as a brother-in-arms in our battles for the preservation of European Christian heritage and the halting of migration. I wish you much success and good health in carrying out your future tasks.”
