WARSAW, Poland: Populist leader Viktor Orbán arrived in Poland Monday, his first foreign trip since being re-elected as Hungarian Prime Minister, where he spoke with his Polish counterpart on the migrant crisis and European Union funding.
Speaking after the talks with Orbán, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki hit out at the EU over its plans to force migrant quotas on all member nations, remarking the move “hit the very foundations of national sovereignty… Here, in Poland, it’s we who decide who will come to Poland and who will not.”

Despite their opposition to having migration policy dictated from the European Union, Orbán insisted after the meeting that the nations were not hard-hearted.
The Associated Press reports the Hungarian leader’s remarks: “We also have hearts, we do not have stones instead of hearts. We are a Christian people. We know what commitments are, what it means to help. But we cannot help anyone if we destroy our country in the meantime.”
