At a press conference held jointly by the two prime ministersViktor Orbán was of the view that the Central European economic models work and the countries of the region are playing a stabilising role in the European Union; therefore they want that role to be reflected in their impact on EU affairs.

According to the Hungarian government's website, Mr. Orbán highlighted that cooperation in large projects will be at the centre of relations between the two countries in the future. From among these he mentioned the importance of North-South energy and transport infrastructure connections.

Prime Minister Morawiecki was of the opinion that the Visegrád countries are an important part of the EU, contributing to economic growth and stability. "We believe in the EU, in the values of the European Union, we want to build the EU together," he stressed.

He explained that Eastern European countries are doing a lot to reduce the tension caused by the crisis. He mentioned, for example, that 1.5 million refugees were admitted by Poland due to the Ukrainian crisis.
