Brussels (MTI) – The European Commission should include Hungary’s extraordinary spending in connection with the migration crisis in its calculations of the country’s public finance deficit, Economy Minister Mihaly Varga said on Tuesday.

Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting of European finance ministers in Brussels, Varga said that one such expense item was the cost of the wire fence along Hungary’s southern border.

Varga suggested that the EC’s position on the subject was becoming more flexible and it was being discussed in EU circles which migration-related expenses should be included in deficit calculations of members.
