On his Nézőpontok blog site, political scientist Ágoston Sámuel Mráz remarks that Boris Johnson obviously finds some common ground with Mr Orbán, a well-known critic of Brussels.
Other European leaders may be more influential, he admits, but Mr Orbán is likely to be around for some time to come, while governments in Spain or Italy come and go; Chancellor Merkel of Germany will retire later this year, and President Macron of France may easily lose his post next year.
Mráz believes Mr Orbán’s invitation was also an expression of British interest towards the Visegrád 4 group, the rotating presidency of which will be filled by Hungary from 1 June.
