Orbán Starts Two-Day Official Visit To Israel
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will leave for Israel on Wednesday afternoon and meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Reuven Rivlin, Israel’s President.

Orbán will be accompanied by four ministers, said the PM’s press chief Bertalan Havasi.

Talks between the prime ministers will take place on Thursday morning and they will be joined afterwards by Hungarian deputy PM Zsolt Semjén, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó and Antal Rogán, the cabinet office head, as well as Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office.

Orbán will meet President Rivlin later on Thursday before meeting Israeli personalities of Hungarian origin.

During a visit to Jerusalem, Orbán will meet David Lau, the Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi, as well as visiting the Yad Vashem Memorial Center, where he will lay a wreath and plant a tree in the Grove of Nations.
