Von der Leyen: Coronavirus Is Not an Excuse for the Backsliding of Democracy

It was also expected to help those countries most impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, such as Italy and Spain, the most.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen expressed concern on Thursday that coronavirus restriction measures taken by Hungary went too far and insisted they should be limited in time and subject to scrutiny.

"We all need to work together to master this crisis".

"While it is understandable that member states have introduced internal border controls to limit the spread of the coronavirus, it is imperative that critical workers are able to reach their destination without delay", according to a statement released by the European Commission, the bloc's executive branch. Von der Leyen added: "you have to help our farmers, and you want to earn the bread for their families at home - of course, under safe working conditions".

Six European Countries on UN Security Council Condemn North Korean Missile Tests
The country fired what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles off its east coast on Sunday. Pompeo told Yonhap that the U.S. stands by its offer to help North Korea fight the new coronavirus.

"It is meant to help Italy, Spain and all other countries that have been hard hit".

But more spendthrift states such as Germany and the Netherlands oppose the idea. "The distance between European nations ... puts everyone at risk".

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said this week that Italy could agree to tap the European Union's emergency war chest, the EMS, if its accompanying strict spending rules were dropped.

Divisions were already deep among member-states on the Union's Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027, as EU leaders disagreed both on the percentage of national contribution and on the priorities of their long-term budget, during February's emergency summit.
