The European Union must restore trust in the bloc, Hungary’s justice minister told a conference on central Europe in Budapest on Friday.
There can be no European integration without trust, László Trócsányi told the conference organised by pro-Fidesz Nézőpont Institute and the Waclaw Felczak Foundation. After the European Parliament elections, the number one task before member states will be restarting dialogue free of prejudice, he added.
Beata Szydlo, Poland’s deputy prime minister, talked about the importance of reforming the EU so that it could avoid crises and respond to new challenges.
She said voters would get to decide if they want to see the EU continue to head towards closer integration, dealing with crisis situations based on the principles of equality and partnership, or the continuation of policies “that cause more and more disappointment to an increasing number of member states and voters”.
