"The President expressed concern over the statements of Hungarian government officials regarding the establishment of separate territorial autonomies," reads the statement.

The statement reads that Prime Minister Orban expressed support for Ukraine's territorial integrity.

Prime Minister Orban also expressed himself for immediate provision of the visa-free regime with the European Union for Ukrainians.

"Special attention was paid to the issue of Russian aggression in Donbas. The parties discussed the issue of preserving the existing regime of the EU sanctions against Russia as an efficient instrument of ensuring full implementation of the Minsk agreements and restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty," reads the statement.
