A Hungarian government billboard featuring George Soros, with the words translated to "Don't let George Soros have the last laugh" is seen at a transit stop in Budapest on July 6, 2017.

The move follows a decision by the Hungarian government to tighten a bill dubbed "Stop Soros" that would restrict the work of Hungarian non-governmental organizations that receive foreign funding.

Orban, an avowed nationalist and critic of Western Europe's embrace of refugees, blamed Soros for much of the country's economic woes ahead of his recent reelection.

"I just want to mention two principles, in which I believe we have agreement".

Rights groups in Hungary and overseas have denounced the proposals as an effort to silence critics.

Orban, who won a landslide victory in the April elections, has repeatedly accused Soros and his organization in support of migrants and undermining national culture.

Orban said on Monday that he had also discussed the next European Union budget with Morawiecki. "So we do not think it is appropriate to reduce the agricultural budget", Hungary's Viktor Orban said.

A magazine owned by an Orban ally later published the names of hundreds of NGO staff, academics, and journalists it said were in the pay of Soros.

Hungarian-American financier George Soros" "Open Society Foundations' network - which funds liberal causes such as the defense of human rights, education, criminal justice reform and better public health standards - announced Tuesday that it will close their offices in Budapest over government legislation targeting its efforts.

Soros, through his Open Society Foundations initiative, has pushed for pro-immigration policies attracting the ire of Orban and his supporters. "It has become impossible to protect the security of our operations and our staff in Hungary from arbitrary government interference".

Previous year billboards erected nationwide depicted his face grinning alongside the words: "Let's not let Soros have the last laugh!"

The campaign was criticized in the Hungarian Jewish community as having anti-Semitic overtones.

Soros' Open Society Foundations, which promote democracy and free speech, have also endured threats of legal sanctions from the government.

"CEU can not go into another academic year in a situation of legal uncertainty", rector Michael Ignatieff said in a statement.
