Justice Minister Judit Varga said Hungary has so far fully implemented commitments it made last August in respect of the EU’s conditionality procedure.
After receiving the French EU affairs minister Laurence Boone, the justice minister said Hungary is “very close” to an agreement with the European Commission as regards the justice package among others, and there are no unresolved “political issues”. Outlining the priorities of Hungary’s EU presidency in the second half of 2024, she told Boone that Hungary intends to focus on demographic issues and competitiveness. She said the two countries shared “connection points” which may advance close cooperation during the presidency. “Hungary supports and will continue to support constructive cooperation,” Varga added.
