The two politicians met on Tuesday to discuss cooperation on border protection and a tougher migration policy.
"The recent Salvini-Orban meeting in Milan represents a historic turning point in European politics. Italy is a natural ally of the Visegrad group. We have important historical ties, as well as political and economic interests, but, above all, we share a vision of Europe that is antithetical to that of Brussels bureaucrats: a Europe of peoples and not of globalized financial powers," Borghezio said.
Salvini and Orban stressed that they were going to oppose migration policy of French President Emmanuel Macron. The French leader said Wednesday that they were right to see him as their main opponent.
Salvini has also been promoting a tougher migration policy, stressing that Italy, which often serves as the first point of entry to the European Union for undocumented migrants, would take no more.
