Hungary will veto the free trade agreement between the EU the US if it doesn't meet Hungarian regulations

Friday, January 9, 2015


Hungarians are terrified of the prospect that the US could force the government to allow the sale of US produced frankenfood to the public. Even the readership of liberal news portals is vehemently opposing the sale of GMO food in Hungary.

The country is ready to veto the free trade agreement with the US if it does not meet regulations laid down the law, which bans the production and sale of genetically modified food in the country.

Secretary of State for Security Policy and International Cooperation István Mikola confirmed to Hir TV that if the free trade agreement between the United States and the European Union will violate Hungarian law and national interests the government would veto it just as other countries intend to do so.

Mikola has noted that the exact details of the free trade negotiations between the US and the European Union are hazy and sketchy at the moment.

Several experts pointed out that free trade negotiations have been going on secretly, which raise concerns among the general public.

Instead of "laid down the law" I'd say laid down the Constitution...

Next to gmo food, this trade agreement gives the big US international companies the freedom to sue europian governments on their laws. Also it opens up for the big US farmers and they will destroy our farmers.

This is just an agreement to extend American political and economical power in Europe it has nothing to do with free trade, just with destroying the sovereignity of the Europian nation states. So Hungary should veto this agreement no matter what!
