Hungary, US strengthen strategic alliance, says foreign minister in Washington, DC
Hungary and the United States have strengthened their strategic alliance, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said after talks with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Washington on Wednesday.
Hungary not to join ‘hysterical’ critics of US
Hungary has always refrained from criticising the foreign policy decisions of the United States, the minister told MTI before meeting his US counterpart on Wednesday.
“We have always respected the sovereign foreign policy decisions of other nations and expect others to act similarly in their dealings with us,” he said.
The visit, he said, is meant to confirm that the two countries make similar approaches to a number of political issues.
Both the US administration and the Hungarian government give priority to the security of their citizens. “Both governments have made clear that they oppose illegal migration and have acted as close allies in the global fight against terrorism,” he said.
Hungary and the US are cooperating in reforming the United Nations.
They also agree on the need that “the international community should make a balanced and fair approach to Israel.”
Both the US administration and the Hungarian government are committed to protecting the Jewish-Christian values and heritage, Szijjártó added.
