Hungarian nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Italy's hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini launched Tuesday an anti-migration manifesto aiming at next year's European parliament elections, and countering their opposing camp led by the French president.
"There are currently two camps in Europe and one is headed by (Emmanuel) Macron," Orban said at a press conference after holding talks with Salvini in Milan.
"He is at the head of the political forces supporting immigration. On the other hand, we want to stop illegal immigration."
EU countries are expected to go to the polls in May, and Salvini has aligned himself with the right-wing "Visegrad" countries: the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria and Hungary.
