Budapest, May 21 (MTI) – The recent hearing at the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Subcommittee on Europe, confirmed that relations between Hungary and the US are very good, former Republican Congressman Connie Mack told public news channel M1 on Thursday.
The questions raised, the contributors and the congressmen’s statements all reflected that the two countries are maintaining strong, fruitful and long-term relations, he said.
Contributors expressed thanks to Hungary for its involvement in the anti-ISIS coalition, and appreciated its role in NATO, he said.
Those who tried to put Hungary in a bad light failed. Chairman Dane Rohrabacher and committee members made it clear that they would not tolerate anyone making false, unfounded statements about Hungary for political gains. Some contributors were called on to support their negative statements by facts, but in vain. The chairman has flatly rejected statements by a participant who associated the Hungarian government with anti-Semitism, he said.
Rohrabacher acknowledged that Washington had applied double standards in its dealings with Hungary and that the Hungarian government had been exposed to politically motivated attacks, the former congressman said.
