New EU budget dismissed as ‘Soros Plan’ by Hungarian govt spokesperson.
The European Parliament and EU government negotiators reached a deal on Tuesday after four months of talks, although the agreement could suffer some hitches when it seeks formal approval by the 27 member states, given previous reservations expressed by Poland and Hungary.
Following the conclusion of talks, Kovacs published an article via the PM’s International Communications Office accusing the EU of “executing the Soros Plan” by trying to give the parliament the power to “blackmail and pressure dissenting member states to fall in line.”
In a recent interview, Hungarian PM Viktor Orban claimed that “George Soros wrote it four years ago that those countries that refuse to let migrants in should not receive EU funds.”
On a similar note, last month, Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski said that if the EU proceeds with the budget and its associated conditions, “there will be a veto,” as the government will “firmly defend Poland’s vital interests.”
