Lithuania: Lithuanian, Polish PMs slam Hungarian, Slovakian meetings with Russia’s Lavrov

Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte criticised the Hungarian and Slovakian foreign ministers for meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at a forum in Antalya in Türkiye, BNS reported. Simonyte said that the meetings that Hungary’s Peter Szijjarto and Slovakia’s Juraj Blanar had with Lavrov were “a regrettable choice.” Meanwhile, speaking at a press conference with Simonyte in Vilnius, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said that the meetings with Lavrov were “difficult to accept for moral and political reasons.” He hoped that such “incomprehensible gestures” were merely accidental and that opinions in both Hungary and Slovakia would change sooner or later.
