Orban asked Erdogan to support his initiative on Ukraine

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says he has asked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to join efforts to resolve the Ukrainian conflict.

About it writes RIA Novosti.

In a video message following talks with Erdogan on the margins of the NATO summit in Washington, Orban said he had asked the Turkish leader to support Budapest in the peace mission.

According to the prime minister, the positions of the warring parties are still far apart, but if the “friends of peace” unite, it will be possible to take the next step towards peace.

Orban described Erdogan as the only state leader who has a successful experience in mediating a grain deal in the conflict in Ukraine.

Earlier, the Hungarian prime minister sent a letter to European Council chief Charles Michel and EU leaders after meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He told Michel and EU leaders that the chances of a ceasefire in Ukraine were increasing.
