FinMin calls Fitch rating "unfriendly"

Finance minister János Veres said on Saturday that a move by credit ratings company Fitch was "unfriendly," for it had issued data on Hungary earlier in the week "knowing we would be meeting on Thursday." Veres was speaking after a Saturday meeting with Fitch representatives, where, he said "they got satisfactory replies to all their questions" and "their earlier doubts." Earlier in the week Fitch had issued a Euroconvergency report, saying that Hungary was the only one of the central and east European countries joining the EU in 2004 not to have met a single criteria required to introduce the euro.
