Hungary sends response to EC over rule of law concerns
"As usual, we sent our reply to the Commission's letter on the rule of law in time," Justice Minister Judit Varga said on late on Monday in a post on her Facebook page, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
"Loyal cooperation and constructive dialogue based on mutual respect have always been important to the Hungarian Government," the minister said.
Varga said Hungary has "still answered all the Commission's questions fully and professionally, despite the fact that we have found the concerns of Brussels unfounded on certain points".
"We will continue to believe in a straightforward and professional dialogue. We are ready for discussion and agreement," she said.
The European Commission announced late in April that it is sending a letter to Hungary on the launch of a conditionality mechanism over rule of law concerns that could result in the suspension of the country's EU funding.
