It is wrong to use European Union financial instruments for political purposes, Balázs Orbán, the prime minister’s political director, told Zoltán Kovács, the state secretary for international communications and relations, in The Bold Truth about Hungary podcast on Monday.
Kovács said Hungary had concluded talks with the European Commission about the recovery fund in a positive manner, but recent reports suggest that decisions were being postponed. Orbán said the “leftist transnational political ideology has kidnapped European integration” and “European institutions are not using their legal neutral power to keep together the European integration but they want to push forward a political agenda.”
He said it was the same situation in the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Court of Justice of the European Union, each of which should be neutral, in line with the treaties.
