Hungary and the United States are going to cooperate in family policies, Hungary’s state secretary for family and youth affairs told MTI late on Friday after talks with senior US officials in Washington.
Katalin Novák said that her negotiating partners – Garrett Grigsby, director of global affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services, and his chief adviser – showed keen interest in Hungary‘s family policy, appreciated its value-based approach, and offered cooperation.
The two countries will organise a joint family policy conference in Washington in March, with Hungary outlining its taxation policies promoting families, she said.
Both countries reject the UN recommendations entitled Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, which would make abortion a general practice, Novák said.
Hungary and the United States agree that access to abortion is an internal affair of each country, an issue that should not be regulated globally, she said.
