The Greek PM also expressed support for Ukraine’s bid to join the bloc – one of the key, and most contentious, issues on the agenda of the meeting – saying that he “hopes we will be able to overcome any objections so that the European Council can unanimously send a clear message that Ukraine’s future is inside the European family.”

The Greek prime minister’s comments come as his Hungarian counterpart, Viktor Orban, made clear that he would block EU accession talks with Ukraine, standing firmly against the view of other EU leaders.
