Hungary will keep to the agreement reached at the European Council summit, as it is binding for everyone, Orban’s press chief cited the prime minister as saying, in a statement.

Hungary expressed its position on the plans to sanction Patriarch Kirill on several occasions at meetings of EU ambassadors in recent weeks, Orban said.

The Hungarian stance was not objected to by anyone at this week’s two-day EU emergency summit, he added.
