Cameron, who is hoping to placate eurosceptics in his own country, wants to be seen as taking a harder line against the EU leadership, according to reports. The British prime minister is said to be looking for allies among the Visegrad Four countries in his conflicts with Brussels over issues such as migration.

Cameron and Orbán will hold talks in Parliament in the afternoon, to be followed by a joint press conference, MTI said. Cameron is also scheduled to meet with Hungaryʼs President János Áder at the Sándor Palace.

Orbán last had talks with Cameron before an EU summit on migration, held in in Brussels in December, and the two reportedly scheduled the January 7 meeting then.
