WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland's prime minister is meeting later in the day with her Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orban for talks concerning European Union security, economy and migrant policy.

Orban and Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo are among the most vocal critics of EU policies and opponents of its plan assigning migrants to be relocated to member nations. They are also pushing for changes to the EU to give members more autonomy.

Their informal talks late Thursday in Poland's southern city of Krakow are being held ahead of the European Council summit Dec. 15 that is to discuss EU economy and future.

Orban's two-day visit to Poland includes an address to a conference of researchers on Central Europe co-hosted by the Jagiellonian University and Hungary's Consulate.
