Boka: EC has no strategy for preventing escalation of war
Commenting on EC President Ursula von der Leyen’s State of the EU speech, Janos Boka said on Facebook that what’s important to Hungary’s government is how her remarks relate to the major issues that the cabinet believes the EU should deal with. Boka said it was also important for the government how the EC president’s remarks related to the main tasks of the EU presidency Hungary is to hold in the second half of 2024.
“We believe that the European Union has not really found an answer to the basic question, which is what could be done to find an end to the war,” he added.
Boka told commercial radio InfoRadio on Wednesday that the EC’s long-standing position on an unwavering support to Ukraine had not changed.
“What is not clear is how military and financial support would take us closer to the end of the armed conflict, which is at the root of the EU’s numerous problems,” he added.
In response to a question, he said the EU in itself was unable to force through a ceasefire.
