BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday the European Union should start setting up a joint European army.

Orban, a staunch critic of the EU's migration policies, said security should be a priority for Europe.

"We should list the issue of security as a priority, and we should start setting up a common European army," Orban told a news conference after a meeting between Central European member states and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Warsaw.
