“We deliberated on this matter yesterday and reaffirmed our stance in favor of the Dutch premier,” Tajani relayed to journalists in Brussels after a convening of NATO foreign ministers.

“The prevailing consensus leans towards Rutte, however, we must await responses from Turkey, Romania, and Hungary,” Tajani appended, as conveyed by the Askanews agency. As per his account, Hungary and Romania are in favor of Romanian President Klaus Iohannis's nomination.
