The prime minister stressed that Hungary will be a good partner during these six months, and will make every effort to seek solutions, results and cooperation opportunities with a view to finding or making headway to finding solutions within the boundaries of the European Union.

Hungary is an open state which is ready for consultation, PM Orbán said. The prime minister described the meeting held with his Maltese counterpart – whom he referred to as an old and great friend of Hungary – as highly fruitful.
