Hungary will not vote for any EU sanctions against Poland, and can in return count on Polish support in the Article 7 procedure launched against it, Péter Szijjártó, the foreign minister, said late on Sunday night, after talks with Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz.
In the talks ahead of the EU foreign ministers’ meeting on Monday, parties agreed that the EU procedures against their countries are politically motivated, Szijjártó’s statement to MTI said.
Hungarian and Polish measures said to have prompted them comply fully with EU regulations, they said. The true reason is the two countries’ migration policy, of which the ministers said neither countries will accept illegal migrants, and they reject compulsory resettlement schemes, the statement said.
