Orbán told Klaus that Brussels’s “flawed sanctions policy” needed to be rethought because the sanctions on Russia had failed to live up to expectations. The war has not ended, prices in Europe are soaring and Russia is benefitting from the situation, the prime minister said.
Orbán and Klaus also discussed the political and economic developments seen in central Europe after the fall of communism, including their own personal memories.
Orbán also held talks with former Czech prime minister Andrej Babis, the head of the opposition ANO movement, ahead of Thursday’s summit of European Union leaders, Havasi said.
