“We believe Poles and Hungarians have a common path, common fight and common goal: to build and defend our homeland in the form that we like it ... Christian and with national values,” Orban said.

Orban, who faces an election on Sunday, reiterated that Poland could count on Hungary in clashes with Brussels.
