European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is scheduled to visit Budapest on Monday evening, the prime minister’s press chief said.
Von der Leyen will hold talks with Prime Minister Viktor Orbán at the Castle District premises of the Prime Minister’s Office as part of a working dinner, Bertalan Havasi told MTI.
Ursula von der Leyen announced the sixth package of EU sanctions on Russia last Wednesday. This includes a complete embargo on Russian oil imports within six months. The sanctions require the unanimous support of the 27 EU countries. However, Budapest and Bratislava quickly expressed their opposition to the sanctions in their present form.
