The heads of state and government are exerting pressure on the Netherlands and Austria by accusing them of “instrumentalizing” the negotiations

EU leaders have put pressure on the Netherlands and Austria, accusing them of “instrumentalizing” the negotiations on the European Fund to block possible progress, according to various diplomatic and European sources.

After a tense four-hour dinner, the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, adjourned the meeting shortly before midnight for a short break of more than two hours to clarify whether there was room for agreement or negotiations to be canceled.

In particular, most heads of state and government accuse The Hague and Vienna of using the debate on linking European funds with respect for the rule of law, which irritates Eastern partners such as Hungary and Poland to block the way for progress in the EU Recovery plan.

Various diplomatic sources have published this message in a coordinated manner to respond to the lack of clarity in the discussions in the northern countries (Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, Sweden and Finland).
