Pope Francis is in Hungary this Sunday, where he met with Prime Minister Viktor Orban. The Pope stated during his visit there that he “opens his arms to everyone”. The comment was interpreted by some as a critique of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s anti-migration policies.
Orban greeted the Argentine pope at the Museum of Fine Arts and the two went to a private meeting which was also attended by the Hungarian president and Vatican officials.
Hungary’s tough stance on migration apparently did not come to the fore.
The Vatican said the meeting was held in a “cordial atmosphere” and lasted longer than expected.
“Among the various topics discussed were the role of the church in the country, the commitment to environmental protection, the protection and promotion of the family,” said a Vatican statement.
