Austria's new chancellor Friday rejected suggestions that his government will align with eastern European Union nations that have clashed with the bloc over migrants and other issues. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz leads a coalition with the traditionally euroskeptic Freedom Party that took office just before Christmas.
