Hungary ready to alter media law - Barroso

Hungarian Premier Viktor Orban has declared his readiness to change the country's controversial media law, EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said Friday in Budapest, DPA reported.

"We have discussed the issue very openly," Barroso told reporters after talks with Orban in the Hungarian parliament.

"I am glad that the prime minister is prepared to change the law if necessary," Barroso said.

Orban said Hungary would do all it can to prevent "adverse political debate" over the issue from hampering the success of its EU presidency.

"We will follow closely the implementation of the law, and if we see any of the criticisms of it come true, we will remedy it," Orban said.
