Hungary and Poland claim victory in rule-of-law negotiations

During a joint press conference involving Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki, Orbán said that common sense prevailed and that they achieved three important goals during their negotiations with the EU.

We did not allow them to go around it – he said regarding the first goal, and regarding the second, he added: We prevented the danger of using budgetary measures to pressure Hungarians into taking decisions that we do not want. – And ultimately, we defended the Hungarian funds, which will be needed in the coming years for economic development – the emphasized.
