Zsolt Németh, the head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, on Wednesday thanked Republican Senator Jim Risch and two other US politicians for criticising their country over its planned termination of a tax agreement with Hungary.
In a statement, Németh said that the US government’s terminating the agreement concluded in 1970 was aimed at exerting “political pressure” on Hungary and that the move “could certainly be linked” to the Hungarian government’s firm rejection of plans to introduce a global minimum tax. He added that the Hungarian government would not support such plans as advocated by “the OECD, the European Union and US Democrats”.
Hungary strives for “balanced and dynamic bilateral cooperation with the US government and partners in the US Congress in as many areas as possible”, Németh said in his letter.
