Hungary Insists On EU 27 Unity On Brexit
Hungary insists on resolving Brexit based on the unified EU position of the 27 remaining member states, Zoltán Kovács, the state secretary for international communications and relations, said during a visit to London.

“It would make no sense ... to think in terms of individual solutions.”

He said the current rights and status of Hungarians living in the UK under EU law should be preserved in a way allowed under international law.

Kovács said the British government had given Hungary guarantees accordingly.
