Hungarian Gov’t Won’t Obstruct Any ‘Constructive’ Brexit Delay

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.04.10.

Hungary’s government will not stand in the way of any “constructive agreement” on the extension of the deadline for Brexit if it offers a chance for Britain to leave the European Union in an orderly fashion, state secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office Szabolcs Takács said on Tuesday.

After attending a meeting of EU ministers in charge of EU affairs, Takács told MTI by phone that the government believed it was important to avoid a “hard Brexit” and to develop the tightest possible relations for the future.

Commenting on next month’s European Parliament elections, he said at stake was “whether the Brussels bureaucrats get to tell others what it means to be a good European and whether nation states can retain the right to decide about their future, preserving their social systems and sovereignty.”
