“The most important issue for us has been settled favourably,” Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in Versailles early on Friday, declaring that “there will be no [European Union] sanctions covering oil and gas; in other words Hungary’s energy supplies will be guaranteed in the coming period.”
In a video recorded after an extraordinary EU summit posted on Facebook, Orbán said: “We listened to the French president and German chancellor who had talks with Putin. It cannot be ruled out that the conflict will drag on. We have decided that Europe will also join ceasefire talks.”
At the meeting, “we thanked both the French president and the German chancellor for their efforts to restore peace,” the prime minister said.
