Justice Minister: Brussels morally irresponsible not to focus on solving problems as quickly as possible

Minister Varga said the European Union needed to provide urgent help to member states most affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Following talks with Ana Paula Zacarias, Portugal’s state secretary for EU affairs, Justice Minister Judit Varga called it “morally irresponsible” on the part of Brussels “not to focus on solving problems as quickly as possible, but to waste time on ideological debates”.

Minister Varga said on Facebook that she had told Zacarias that the European Union needed to provide urgent help to member states most affected by the coronavirus pandemic. As Portugal will hold the EU Council’s rotating presidency between January-June 2021, key issues such as migration and the European climate policy were also discussed, she said.
