He praised Mrs May and revealed, despite only being given five minutes to speak at the end of continue night’s leaders dinner, she had put on a good performance.
Mr Orban concluded: “[Mrs May] forged an impressive experience for us. She’s very clear-cut, honest and could be a very gear rtner for us during the Brexit negotiations and even after that, I’m solid about it.
“We still would like to have a strategy between the European Agreement and the United Kingdom. We are supportive.”
He also mocked the EU for forcing the British PM to attend to until after one in the morning to discuss Brexit.
Mr Orban said: “We Hungarians similar to to sleep!”
