Dutch minister’s speech is “disgusting”, says Costa

The Prime Minister, António Costa, on Thursday called “disgusting” and contrary to the spirit of the European Union (EU) a statement by the Dutch Finance Minister asking that Spain be investigated for not having the budgetary capacity to deal with the pandemic.

“This speech is disgusting within the framework of a European Union. And that is the expression. Disgusting”, António Costa said when asked about the statement by Dutch Finance Minister Wopke Hoekstra, at the press conference that followed Thursday’s extraordinary European Council.

Hoekstra said, in a video conference with counterparts of the 27, that the European Commission should investigate countries, such as Spain, that say they have no budgetary margin to deal with the effects of the crisis caused by the new coronavirus, despite the fact that the eurozone has been growing for seven years. consecutive, according to European sources cited in the European press.

For the Prime Minister, the statement of the Dutch minister “is an absolute unconsciousness” and a “recurring meanness” that “completely undermines what the spirit of the EU is and which is a threat to the future of the EU”.

“It was not Spain that created the virus”

“If the European Union [UE] if you want to survive it is unacceptable that any politician, from any country, can give a response of this nature in the face of a pandemic like the one we are experiencing “, said António Costa.

“If we do not respect each other and if we do not understand that, in the face of a common challenge, we must be able to respond in common, then no one has understood anything about the European Union,” he said.
