The heads of both chambers of Polish Parliament, Marek Kuchcinski and Stanisław Karczewski, met with the head of Hungary’s National Assembly, Laszlo Kover, on 18 April in Warsaw to sign an agreement on strategic partnership between the parliaments of the two countries. During the visit, Kover was also awarded the Commander’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland, a diplomatic order awarded to foreigners for a great service in improving relations with Poland.

According to the agreement, Poland and Hungary will closely cooperate on finding a way out of Europe’s migration crisis and also on reforming and strengthening the European Union. Both countries have agreed for several years now that a radical reform of the EU is necessary, but their approaches to dealing with the migrant crisis are also inching closer since Poland is currently planning on detaining migrants in border camps similar to Hungary’s. Poland’s current governing party, Law and Justice, has been dealing with the opposition’s strong criticism, accusations of undemocratic practices and anti-government protests - their closer relationship with Hungary might underline worries about the direction of Poland’s political system.
