Orbán and Estonian deputy prime minister meet in Budapest

BUDAPEST, Hungary (ChurchMilitant.com) - Hungarian President Viktor Orbán's mission to protect Christian culture is moving up toward the Baltic.

The Hungarian president met with Mart Helme, Estonian deputy prime minister, minister of the interior and chairman of the Conservative People's Party of Estonia (EKRE) to build new alliances between Hungary and the Baltic states.

The talks occurred in the Carmelite monastery next to the presidential palace in the Castle District of Budapest on July 8.

Toward the goal of protecting Christian values, the two leaders agree that national control of external borders and intranational policies that encourage and support families are paramount, Hungarian broadcaster MTVA, Hungary's state-owned national public-service broadcasting organization, reports.

Both leaders see tighter immigration policies and support European families in the interest of solving demographic problems of dwindling population growth.

Bertalan Havasi, the deputy state secretary heading the press office of the prime minister, observed that Helme concurred with Orbán's position that migration should not be the answer to demographic challenges and that European families should receive more support in order to combat the trend of declining birthrates.

A natural alliance. The non-Indo-European speakers have to stick together.

I think Estonian and Hungarian are distantly (very distantly) related (Estonian is much closer to Finnish).
