Hungarian President Katalin Novák held talks with French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni on the sidelines of the Council of Europe summit in Reykjavík.
“There has not been a summit like the one beginning in Reykjavík now for the last twenty years, where we, the leaders of 46 European countries, have gathered,” Novák stated in a Facebook post.
Ahead of the session, she had a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.
Europe needs strategic autonomy to be able to make decisions in its own best interests. However, for this, peace in Ukraine is needed as soon as possible. We count on each other,”
she wrote. ” I stand up for peace at international forums as well: now, at the Council of Europe Summit, a meeting of European leaders in Reykjavík, and on Thursday in New York at the UN,” Novák remarked.
The Hungarian President also met Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, with whom she have been friends for years. The two politicians first met when Novák was state secretary for families and Meloni in opposition. “We are allies both in good and in difficult times. We also stand up together for traditional family values and against illegal migration,” she wrote on Facebook.
