AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Monday she had made progress in talks with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on a possible EU-wide ban on Russian fossil fuels.
“This evening’s discussion with PM Viktor Orban was helpful to clarify issues related to sanctions and energy security”, von der Leyen said in a tweet.
“We made progress, but further work is needed”, she added.
Von der Leyen said she would convene a video conference with other countries in the region to strengthen regional cooperation on oil infrastructure.
