Hungary takes over EU presidency

Budapest, Jul 1 (Prensa Latina) Hungary has taken over the six-month rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) from Belgium on Monday.

The EU presidency will be handed over to Poland in late December.

As the Magyar Nemzet newspaper states, Hungary begins its term under severe disagreements with EU leaders on a series of issues, including the conflict in Ukraine and migration.

The complex relations with the remaining nations were even reflected in the choice of the slogan: Make Europe Great Again.

The official logo is a Rubik’s cube, showing the red-white-and-green Hungarian flag on one side and the EU emblem in the form of stars arranged in a circle on the other.

The puzzle requires strategic vision, patience, discipline, and precision, qualities needed for Hungary’s presidency of the EU.

Earlier, Hungary became the only member State of the community to veto the adoption of a single statement from the organization to condemn the Russian Federation’s retaliatory sanctions against European media.
