Hungary to shun Salvini's group in EU parliament: Orban aide

BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s ruling Fidesz party sees not much chance of working with Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini’s far-right grouping in the European Parliament, Orban’s chief of staff, Gergely Gulyas, said on Thursday.

“We respect the Italian deputy prime minister and the Italian government and the result, which made the Northern League Italy’s strongest party after the European Parliament election,” Gulyas told a news conference.

“Nonetheless, I see not much chance for a co-operation on a party level or in a joint parliamentary group,” Gulyas said.
