Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and his Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orban discussed Ukraine's accession to the EU over the phone on the eve of the European Council meeting.
This was reported by RBC-Ukraine regarding the pages of Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on the social network X (Twitter).
Sanchez said that Spain would continue to provide financial and military support to Ukraine against the Russian invasion.
"Enlargement is an investment in Europe's peace, security, stability and prosperity. As the rotating presidency of the EU Council, Spain will do its utmost to move towards a consensus among the 27 countries and to maintain financial and military support for Ukraine against the Russian invasion. Defending the rules-based international order is one of the fundamental values of the European Union," Sanchez wrote.
Orban, in turn, contradicted his colleague and said that there is no unity in the EU on this issue.
"My message was clear: we should refrain from discussing Ukraine's accession to the EU during December, as there is no unity among the member states on this issue," Orban wrote.-
