The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban will meet with the former US president Donald Trump in Florida on March 8, his press office chief told Hungarian news agency MTI late Sunday.

In February, nationalist Orban wished Trump back in the US presidency this year.

“We hope that the current president will leave and President Trump will come back and have a free hand to make peace (in Ukraine),” the Hungarian Prime Minister said on February 23.

Orban has refused to allow his country to send weapons to Ukraine to help it repel the Russian invasion, while criticizing Western sanctions against Moscow. He has repeatedly called for a ceasefire in the war in Ukraine.

The Hungarian Prime Minister, in power since 2010, has strained relations with Joe Biden’s administration, mainly due to Budapest’s delay in ratifying Sweden’s NATO membership.

Orban has said June’s US presidential and European elections will be crucial as conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic will have to fight together to “reclaim” institutions in Washington and Brussels from liberals, the which, according to the Hungarian prime minister, threaten Western civilization.
