The EU will not impose sanctions against oil and gas imports from Russia, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday.
"The most important issue for us was resolved in a favorable way: there will be no sanctions on gas and oil, so that Hungary is provided with a reliable energy supply in the coming period," Orban was quoted as saying by Western media.
The prime minister made such a statement against the backdrop of an informal EU summit taking place in Versailles.
Earlier on Friday, it was reported that EU leaders announced their intention to continue supporting Ukraine and help it recover. The heads of state and government of the community also declared their determination to "further increase (...) pressure on Russia and Belarus."
Earlier this week, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said he did not support the idea of immediately abandoning the import of Russian oil and gas, as it is not rational for the countries of the European Union.
