Budapest, October 27 (MTI) – It cannot be denied that Hungarian-US relations have hit a really low point, Tamas Fellegi, development minister of the previous Orban government, told daily Nepszabadsag’s Monday issue.
The visit in the US of Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has “probably helped a lot,” he said. The Hungarian government gave signals that it is working on solving the problem and not deepening it and that it respects the United States and takes it seriously. “Too bad the Americans did not see it this way,” he told the paper from Minnesota.
Fellegi, now at the helm of the Hungary Initiatives foundation, said “there is undeniably some kind of… I don’t know if the word crisis will cover it, in Hungarian-US relations, I would need to know more about the internal dynamics of things. It’s more like a low point,” he said, adding that it was commendable that both governments were trying to remain on an even keel in connection with the conflict marring relations between them.
