Hungarian PM Orbán Hails Macron’s EU Reform Initiative
Viktor Orbán, Hungary’s prime minister, hailed French President Emmanuel Macron’s call for launching talks on reforming the European Union.

“This could mark the beginning of a serious European debate,” Orbán said in a statement sent to Reuters by email.

“In the details, of course, we have differences of views, but far more important than these differing opinions is that this initiative be a good start to a serious and constructive dialogue on the future of Europe,” he said.
