Hungary is counting on the Czech Republic to cooperate on sanctions policy and to receive the EU support to which it is entitled, President of Hungary Katalin Novák wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday after meeting Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala.
The President’s visit to Prague
According to Demokrata, the Hungarian President, who is on a two-day official visit to Prague, stressed that she and the Czech Prime Minister agreed that the Russian-Ukrainian war must end as soon as possible, and that the two countries must provide all possible assistance to refugees and people in need.
“This requires not only words, but also concrete actions and EU funds”,
wrote Katalin Novák, adding that
“we count on Czech pragmatism in cooperating on sanctions policy and in ensuring that Hungary receives the EU funds it is rightfully entitled to”.
The forthcoming Czech Presidency of the EU may also have a role to play in this, Novák noted. The President also stressed that cooperation between the Visegrád Four (V4) is a priority for the Czech Republic as well.
“It is good that we were able to speak openly and frankly with Prime Minister Fiala,” Katalin Novák concluded.
