250 views

Following bilateral talks with Ferenc Gyurcsány, Hungarian Prime Minister, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, told journalists the European Commission will advance with the second instalment of its aid to Hungary before the end of March 2009. Of course, the very important decisions taken by the Hungarian government should now be followed through with resolute action. Ferenc Gyurcsány called again for European solidarity and for a massive EU aid plan for crisis-hit banks in Central and Eastern Europe. He warned that the possible further depreciation of invested assets by European banks in Central and Eastern Europe could not only affect the countries of the region but also have a negative impact on the Member Countries of the eurozone. Asked about Hungary joining the euro, the president of the European Commission said that any EU member should, unless it had specific opt-outs, aim to join the euro as soon as possible.
