Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, along with several ministers from his cabinet, are also due to meet with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk and his ministers to conclude a number of intergovernmental agreements, the Government Office press department informed the TASR newswire. Orbán and Tusk will be joined at the working dinner by their Slovak and Czech counterparts Robert Fico and Bohuslav Sobotka.
