Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has battled with the European Union over issues ranging from the sheltering of refugees to the rule of law, accused the bloc of siding with “terrorists.”

Speaking to lawmakers in Budapest on Monday, Orban rejected what he called efforts to turn the EU into a federation and defended an advertising campaign sponsored by his government that has covered the country of 10 million people with billboards reading “Stop Brussels.” Still, he said he’ll refrain from ending his country’s membership.
