BUDAPEST – Hungary is eligible for recovery funds from the European Union and debates about a new child protection law should not have any effect on their disbursement, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff said on Thursday.

Gergely Gulyas was referring to a new Hungarian law banning schools from using materials seen as promoting homosexuality, which has triggered widespread condemnation in Europe.

He also told a government briefing that the government was not willing to change its stance that sexual education is right of parents.
