    LUBIANA - The Slovenian prime minister has announced his country's support for Hungary's and Poland's veto on the Recovery Plan. ''Only an independent judicial body can say what is the rule of law, not a political majority'', wrote Janez Jansa in a letter sent on November 17 to European Council President Charles Michel , which was viewed by Agence France Presse.

    Shortly before, Hungarian Premier Viktor Orban tweeted: with the Recovery Plan the EU ''wants to blackmail those opposing immigration'', stressing there will not be ''an agreement without objective criteria and the possibility of appealing''.

    Hungary, which on Monday vetoed the plan to exit the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, claims that, once it will be adopted, ''there will not be any obstacles to bind member States to the mechanisms to support immigration''.
