On Friday, German Foreign Office State Secretary Miguel Berger tweeted that the European Union must finds ways to address ways of managing dissent, including qualified majority voting on foreign policy, following Hungary blocking a joint EU statement that was critical of China’s Hong Kong policy.

The EU’s common foreign and security policy will only work if all member states following joint initiatives; unilateral decisions to block joint initiatives was counterproductive.

“Hungary again blocked an EU-Statement on #Hongkong. Three weeks ago it was on Middle East,” tweeted Berger. “We need a serious debate on ways to manage dissent, including qualified majority voting.”
