Justice Minister Judit Varga held talks with her Czech counterpart Pavel Blažek and Mikuláš Bek, the minister for European affairs, in Prague on Tuesday.
According to MTI, the talks focused on the priorities of Czechia’s presidency of the Council of the European Union as well as the challenges facing the bloc. The minister said she had emphasized at the talks that Hungary would not support any measures that would lead to further energy price increases, higher inflation or greater burdens stemming from sanctions. Minister Varga said she had briefed her Czech partners on Hungary’s talks with the European Commission on the conditionality mechanism procedure and had asked them for their help in allowing the procedure to be concluded during the Czech presidency. European unity and the principle of solidarity mean that Hungary and Hungarians must get what they are entitled to, the minister said. Minister Varga highlighted Hungary and Czechia’s historical ties, saying that the most important common point in their futures was their place in the European community.
