Understandable that Hungary not engaged in euro-zone adoption, says Merkel

Berlin, October 11 (MTI) – It is understandable that Hungary is not currently engaged in the issue of adoption of the single currency, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told a news conference after meeting Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in Berlin on Thursday.

Merkel said at the joint news conference held with Orban that the euro’s success was of a fundamental interest to EU member states outside the euro zone, and, after consolidation, the expansion of the zone would again be put on the agenda.

 

Orban had “never put up opposition” to euro-zone reforms, but wished it “much success”, she added.

 

Orban said that Hungary “does not rule out the euro” but will only introduce a new currency when there is once again a perspective for the country to prepare for doing so.
