Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to address international conference in Turkey on Friday 

On Friday in Antalya in Turkey, at the invitation of Turkish head of state Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will attend the Antalya Diplomacy Forum (ADF), Bertalan Havasi, the Prime Minister’s press chief confirmed to the Hungarian news agency MTI. 

The Antalya Diplomacy Forum will be held between 1 and 3 March at the initiative of President Erdogan and the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The forum to be held for the third time will gather heads of state and government, ministers, diplomats, business leaders, academics, think-tankers, and youth and media representatives for an all-encompassing debate, the website of the event reads where Mr Orbán is listed as one of the speakers.

The title of this year’s edition of the ADF is ‘Advancing Diplomacy in Times of Turmoil’. It aims to serve as a thorough reflection and the means for searching a peaceful way out of the turbulent period our world is going through. Ongoing wars, acts of terrorism, irregular migration, rise of xenophobia and Islamophobia, unforeseen risks of AI, climate change, natural disasters, pandemics and widening socioeconomic gaps form a non-exhaustive list of global challenges. The erosion and subsequently the loss of trust in the rules-based international order is also a worrying trend, undermining the predictability of the environment in which states operate, the official website of the forum outlining the topics to be discussed reads. 

According to the published programme, the Hungarian prime minister will speak in Antalya in the early evening of Friday, local time.
