Prime Minister Viktor Orbán talked by phone with Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte, with the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis in Europe, and the EU economic recovery fund the focus of the discussion, the prime minister’s press chief said on Saturday.
Orbán told Rutte that Europe must work towards restoring peace, Bertalan Havasi said in a statement.
Rutte criticized Orbán and his government many times before. In 2021, some European media outlets even called the Dutch prime minister
Orbán’s chief EU critic.
