Tough issues to clear for start of EU membership talks with Ukraine -PM OrbanStephanie Chan
BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday that several “very difficult questions” would need to be answered before the European Union could even start membership talks with Ukraine.
EU countries are due to decide in December whether to allow Ukraine to begin accession negotiations, which would require the unanimous backing of all 27 members. Diplomats have said Hungary may be an obstacle.
