Hungary Raises Veto Threat on Serbia’s EU Candidacy Status

October 12, 2011

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Hungary has tied its support for Serbia’s European Union candidacy to lawmakeres in Belgrade changing a restitution law by December, the Foreign Ministry said in an e-mailed statement today.

Hungary considers the law, passed by the Serbian parliament last month, as discriminatory, the ministry said.

“We expect the Serbian side to solve this problem by early December at the latest,” the ministry said. “That’s the only way the European Council can muster the unanimous support necessary to approve the candidacy on December 9.”
