Budapest, March 7 (MTI) – Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán called Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss issues around the planned upgrade of Hungary’s Paks nuclear plant on Tuesday, the prime minister’s press office told MTI.
The call came in the wake of the European Commission’s giving the green light to the upgrade project on Monday.
Parties at the talks also discussed topical issues around bilateral relations, as well as the implementation of agreements signed during Putin’s February 2 visit to Budapest, kremlin.ru, the Russian president’s official site, reported.
Putin and Orbán welcomed the EC decision, which has “removed obstacles from adding two new blocks to Hungary’s Paks Nuclear Plant, involving Russian state company Rosatom,” kremlin.ru said.
International affairs were also touched upon in the talks, the Russian site added.
