the Committee of The 28 EU ambassadors (Coreper) and waved on Friday in Brussels, the draft conclusions on the relationship between Switzerland and the EU. Finally, the Europe must accept the Minister this coming Tuesday.
Actually, the EU would have to agree-the Ambassador of the draft on Wednesday, but said after Hungary had made an objection applicable in connection with a short Passage on Migration, the Swiss commitment is praised.
Hungary is supposed to be according to EU diplomats, but not to Switzerland, but certain formulations in connection with the Migration went, did not want to support.
Budapest was, therefore, an additional statement for the record. In it noted that "the EU-Switzerland cooperation with the international Migration affects national decisions and policies of the member States in the area of Migration" – also not the cooperation of the EU member States at the global level.

Also, the automatic exchange of information (AEOI) on financial accounts and taxation of companies, there is praise. Positive is the EU-States, also note that the Federal Council has given the green light for a new contribution to Cohesion.
