Pressure = density * gravity *height, so the pressure is same in both tubes, despite them having different cross sections.

The cross section would impact the mass and weight of the liquids, but not the pressure.

Pressure difference, if any, could be caused by external (e.g. atmospheric) pressure, or mechanical motion (e.g. rotation, etc.).
