“There are very robust reasons to expect that the veto of Poland and Hungary on the EU budget will be overcome,” European Union Economic Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni said on Tuesday.

“We don’t want to consider any plan B to tackle Poland and Hungary’s budget veto,” Gentiloni added and reiterated that they need to work hard to avoid a delay in the launch of the EU recovery fund.”
