Hungary's Orban calls for new European Commission that stops migration

MILAN (Reuters) - Europe needs a new European Commission and parliament that stand up for the protection of borders and stopping migration, nationalist Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Tuesday after meeting Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

Orban, whose right-wing government has built a fence along Hungary’s southern borders to keep out migrants, praised Salvini for being the first senior figure in Europe’s Mediterranean countries to prove “migration can also be stopped by sea”.

“Europe’s security hinges on his (Salvini’s) success,” Orban told a joint news conference with Salvini in Milan.
