ORBÁN EXPLAINS WHY HUNGARY BLOCKED PEACE FRAMEWORK FUND PAYMENTS

 

Explaining why Hungary has blocked further payments from the European Peace Framework fund, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said a meeting of leaders of the Centrist Democrat International in the Slovenian resort of Bled that the funds had been designated for European security, not for the war in Ukraine, with a view to boosting security throughout Europe. Most of the funds are being used to support Ukraine, he said, adding that Hungary wants to clarify whether the fund serves its original purpose or whether it is being channelled to supporting Ukraine.
The Centrist Democrat International’s meeting is being held under the motto “Security, Justice, Peace”, and Orbán is participating as one of its vice-presidents.
