Agreement among member states in the European Union should abide by the original spirit of the bloc, the government’s spokesman told public radio on Friday.

Zoltán Kovács said the dispute over migrant quotas was unsolvable and attempts to link cohesion funding to the issue were based on a false argument which misled public opinion. The threat to withdraw cohesion funding indicates a fundamental misunderstanding of why the EU came into being, he added.

Instead of using “threats, blackmail and double standards” to force quotas on states, issues on which there is common agreement, such as the need to protect the bloc’s external borders, should be put to the fore, he said.
