BUDAPEST – Europe needs strategic autonomy in three areas, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Monday as Budapest hosted French President Emmanuel Macron for a summit of East European leaders.

“We support the policy of common European defence capabilities, nuclear energy and a strong European farming sector,” Orban told a news conference.
