In a post on social media platform X, János Bóka, Hungary’s EU minister, said the success of Hungary’s upcoming European Union presidency is in the interest of the European Commission.
After talks with Ilze Juhansone, secretary general of the EC in Brussels on Tuesday, Bóka’s ministry said in a statement that the talks focused on topical issues on the agenda of the EU, with special regard to preparations for the Hungarian presidency. Bóka also held talks with Hadja Lahbib, his Belgian counterpart, and Skander Nasra, chief advisor to the Belgian prime minister. Hungary, as part of the Spanish-Belgian-Hungarian presidential trio, will seek to continue the work of Spain and Belgium “along the lines of its own priorities”, the ministry said. The Hungarian presidency will seek close cooperation with both Belgium and the European Commission, the statement said.
