Asked by a reporter on Friday (May 28) about British opposition parties' concerns about some of Orban's previous comments, the 57-year-old said that while he was firm in his anti-immigration views, they were not based on ethnicity.
Orban said any criticism he has made of Hungary-born U.S. businessman George Soros was based on his views and activities on issues of migration.
A maverick nationalist who has locked horns with the EU over a perceived erosion of democratic standards in Hungary and rows over immigration, Orban is currently working to build a new conservative alliance within Europe.
He was hosted by Johnson at 10 Downing Street to strengthen bilateral ties between the two countries following the UK's departure from the European Union.
