Justice minister: EU deal victory of common sense
Varga welcomed that the the community was now focusing on the coronavirus pandemic and its economic impacts rather than on ideological debates, and called the recovery package unprecedented.
The EU treaties must not be bypassed, nor should some member states be politically blackmailed through the community budget, pressing them to change their position concerning major issues, the minister said. She rejected accusations that the Hungarian government takes EU money but rejects the community’s democratic norms. It is in all members’ interest that community funds should be spent legitimately, especially because Hungarian taxpayers, too, contribute to the European budget, she insisted.
According to Varga, the Hungarian government has obtained guarantees of fair procedures and legal security.
