Hungary: Orban, EU funds not given due to LGBTQ policy

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEP 17 - "Continuous challenges" can be expected from the European Parliament, but Hungary will stand up for its sovereignty and competencies, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in a interview on Kossuth Rádió today.

"Reconstruction funds are loans that Brussels does not want to give us now because of the debate around LGBTQ policy," Orban added. Orban noted that "we will be among the last ones in the EU, should it ever cease to exist." In relation to Pope Francis' visit to Hungary on Sunday, Orban said that while they avoided some topics like immigration, where their views differ, the two agreed on the importance of protecting families. "According to Pope Francis, the family consists of a father, a mother and children," the PM said in closing, the governmental portal About Hungary reported. (ANSA).
