“We have affirmed that we stand by each other,” Szijjarto said in a Facebook video."

Poland’s deputy foreign minister, Pawel Jablonski, told private broadcaster Polsat News his country had not changed its stance either.

“... the prime minister made it very clear that we would not agree to any solutions that would not guarantee respecting our rights, would not give us a guarantee that we are safe, that the rights that are set out in the EU treaty are respected,” he said.

“If there is an agreement that guarantees these rights, then we will agree. A veto is a tool,” he added.
