ORBÁN: QUALITY OF BUDGET MORE IMPORTANT THAN TIME FRAME

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said he has presented his concrete proposals on righting the conceptual problems in the EU’s budget at the Friends of Cohesion meeting of government heads in Portugal and forwarded them to the head of the European Council. Further talks are to be expected with the countries that share Hungary’s concerns regarding the budget’s conceptual framework, he said. “We want a fair budget,” Orbán said. “Once we have that, Hungarians will find what they want; a combination of figures that work in their favour.” The Feb. 20 summit does not mean the end of negotiations, Orbán said, adding that the “quality” of the budget was more important for Hungary than the date of its acceptance.
