The Hungarian government will continue taking all measures necessary to prevent the growing of DuPont Pioneer 1507 genetically modified (GMO) corn in Hungary, the Regional Development Ministry told local wire service MTI on Monday.
Hungary is determined to remain GMO-free in an effort “to protect its uniquely rich natural treasures,” the ministry said in a press release.
Hungary called it a travesty that the GMO corn could be allowed into the European Union (EU) when there was scientific proof that it had harmful effects.
It also stated that Hungary would do everything in its power to tighten up the EU permit process, to prevent it from ignoring reportedly demonstrated harmful effects and to give members the right to be heard and to prevent GMO crops from entering their countries.
