BUDAPEST (Reuters) - TheEuropean Union has harmed itself economically with the sanctions it has imposedon Russia over Ukraine, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday,calling for a rethink..

Orban's remarks came a day after his Slovak counterpart, Robert Fico,criticised the sanctions as "meaningless", saying they would threateneconomic growth in the 28-member bloc.

"The sanctions policy pursued by the West, that is, ourselves, a necessaryconsequence of which has been what the Russians are doing, causes more harm tous than to Russia," Orban said in a radio interview. "In politics,this is called shooting oneself in the foot."

Export-driven Hungary is heavily reliant on energy imports from its formerCommunist overlord and early this year Budapest agreed with Russian power firmRosatom to expand Hungary's only nuclear plant in a 10 billion euro ($13billion) deal.

Russia is also Hungary's largest trading partner outside the European Union,with exports worth 2.55 billion euros in 2013.

"The EU should not only compensate producers somehow, be they Polish,Slovak, Hungarian or Greek, who now have to suffer losses, but the entiresanctions policy should be reconsidered," Orban said.

EU foreign ministers are holding an emergency meeting on Friday to discussconflicts in Ukraine and Iraq.

Orban had already signalled opposition to economic sanctions against Russia forfear of damaging the domestic economy. On Friday, he said he would seek ways tofacilitate a rethink.

"I will do my utmost - of course we are all aware of Hungary's weight, sothe possibilities are clear - but I am looking for partners to change the EU'ssanctions policy, which I think has not been considered thoroughlyenough," he said.

Hungary's Agriculture Ministry said on Tuesday that farming exports would notbe harmed significantly by a Russian import ban on a range of foods from theEU.

It said the banned products account for less than 30 percent of Hungary'sagricultural exports to Russia and only one percent of its total farmingexports.

Amid weaker growth in the EU's east, Hungary was among the bright spots, withThursday's preliminary GDP figures in Slovakia, Bulgaria and Hungary all betterthan expected, led by the latter's 0.8 percent quarterly expansion.

布达佩斯(路透社)——欧盟对俄罗斯入侵乌克兰强行制裁已经损害到了自身经济,匈牙利总理Viktor Orban星期五表示,并要求其重新考虑制裁行为。

在斯洛伐克总理罗伯特菲佐公开批评制裁毫无意义,只会制约欧盟28成员国的经济发展之后Viktor Orban发表该评论。
