The Czech government announced that the two leaders will talk about security and defense cooperation within the Visegrad Group, migration, a new multiannual financial framework, and the upcoming European elections. Orbán is also due to meet with new Senate chief Jaroslav Kubera and Cardinal Dominik Duka.

Several members of Orbán’s cabinet are set to join him during his state visit to Prague. Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó and Defense Minister Tibor Benkö have been invited for a meeting with the Chamber of Deputies chief Radek Vondráček.

Vondráček will also meet with Orbán as well. Gergely Gulyás, the Minister heading Orbán’s Office and the Czech Defense Minister Lubomír Metnar will join them for a discussion focused on mutual cooperation of the two countries in the EU.

Following their meeting in August, when Babiš visited Orbán in Budapest, the Czech PM said that he sees great potential for collaboration in the arms industry. The Hungarian PM, on the other hand, welcomed an opportunity to meet such “an unconventional politician with innovative ideas.”
