BUDAPEST, June 19 (Reuters) - Hungary will likely support the European Union’s economic rescue plan to inject billions of euros into the bloc’s coronavirus-ravaged economies, Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Friday ahead of a conference of EU leaders.
“Several EU member states are in such a dire situation now that we can hardly avoid approving that Hungary would also support a joint borrowing plan,” Orban told state radio .
The 27 leaders will join a video conference from 0800 GMT to discuss the recovery plans for the bloc. They hope to unite behind an unprecedented 750-billion-euro stimulus programme. (Reporting by Krisztina Than; editing by John Stonestreet)
