Hungary's government has sent a letter responding to concerns aired by the European Commission in the framework of a conditionality mechanism procedure, Justice Minister Judit Varga said in a post on Facebook.

"The reply was preceded by intensive consultations. In just one month, we held 10 video conferences and numerous meetings with the commission while more than 100 draft measures have been circulated and discussed," Varga said in the post.

"The Hungarian Government has put a comprehensive package of measures on the table to address all the commission's concerns," she added.

Varga said the government "remains open to a constructive dialogue with the commission".

The EC launched the conditionality mechanism procedure against Hungary in April over issues the EU's executive body said might breach the rule of law and affect the EU budget. A response the government sent to the EC at the end of June left some concerns unaddressed, an EC spokesperson said late in July, adding that the government had one month to submit remarks on the issues.
