Viktor Orban backs anti-terrorism proposals of U.S. Republican presidential candidate

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is better for Europe.

It is reported by EUobserver.

"I'm not part of Donald Trump's campaign. I'd never have thought it would occur to me that [Trump] would be the best choice for Europe and for Hungary", Orban said in a speech at a university fair in Baile Tusnad, in Romania, on Saturday (23 July), according to EUobserver.

"But I listened to the candidate and I must tell you he made three proposals to combat terrorism. As a European, I could have hardly articulated better what Europe needs."

Orban said that European countries need better intelligence agencies. Orban agreed with Trump saying about the need to cease "regime change" policies.
