Hungary Vows to Veto Possible EU Anti-Poland Sanctions

Hungary will veto the proposed move against Poland
"The Polish-Hungarian friendship and the Hungarian government's commitment to treaties obliges us to step up against the Commission's position in all forums," Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen told national MTI news agency on Wednesday, adding that Hungary will veto the proposed move against Poland.

According to the minister, the proposed measures against Poland over judicial reforms violate the country's sovereignty.

While commenting on the motion, the Polish Foreign Ministry assured that Warsaw was ready to protect its position at the top European, with a similar stance voiced by Poland's Justice Ministry head Zbigniew Ziobro, who has said that the country would continue its legislative reform despite the threat of EU sanctions.

The move follows the European Parliament's resolution, set to launch both political and economic sanctions against Poland over the reforms that, as claimed by the bloc, deviate from democracy and the rule of law. The stance was slammed by Warsaw, which called it "an instrument of political pressure upon Poland."
