Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer will receive Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for official talks in Vienna next Thursday, the prime minister’s press chief has said.
The meeting will focus on the European energy crisis, the Russia-Ukraine war and the common fight against illegal migration, Bertalan Havasi said. Additional topics will include the European Union outlook for the Western Balkans and current issues concerning the EU recovery plan.
The Austrian Federal Chancellery said in a statement that Nehammer regarded Hungary as an “important neighbour and partner of Austria”, and expressed gladness in welcoming Orbán to Vienna next Thursday. “Good bilateral relations with Hungary”, he added, were “especially important from the point of view of the fight against illegal immigration and commitment to the EU outlook of the Western Balkans,” the statement said.
