EU'S REYNDERS: HUNGARY MEETING COMMITMENTS FULLY MAY ALLAY EU CONCERNS

 

If Hungary properly implements planned measures aimed at allaying the rule-of-law concerns of the European Union, then an agreement aimed at resolving the impasse over funding can be reached, Didier Reynders, the EU justice commissioner, said on Monday. During the EP plenary debate on the evaluation of Hungary’s planned measures aimed at unlocking EU funding, Reynders said the European Commission wanted to ensure that EU monies were no longer “endangered” in Hungary, and the aim was to achieve this quickly on the back of the “appropriate reforms in Hungary”. Regarding Hungary’s plan for accessing recovery funds, the commissioner said progress had been made on most issues in recent months during Hungary-EC talks. “We’re now striving to complete the evaluation of the Hungarian plan as soon as possible,” he said.
