"Hungary's aim is to ensure that the rights of Hungarians living in the UK are not hurt after Britain exits the European Union", Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said after talks with British counterpart Theresa May in Downing Street.
Orbán told the press that the British prime minister was in agreement that the issues should be handled on the principle of reciprocity. If the rights of Britons living in Europe are not hurt, then the British government's position is that the rights of EU citizens in the UK should not be hurt, either, Orbán said. He added that this was an important result of the meeting with May.
Meanwhile, he said in his assessment of the outcome of the US election that the world had "returned to the soil of reality". He said the world always comes out well in the end if it is able to free itself from the reigning ideology of the time. Commenting on Donald Trump's victory, Orbán said, "I think this has now happened in the United States, and this gives the rest of the western world the chance to break away from this ideology, this political correctness and a way of thinking that departs from reality..."
