Washington, DC, February 3 (MTI) – The new Washington administration trusts that the United States is entering a completely new epoch, which may bring about changes in its policy towards Hungary, Hungarian Human Resources Minister Zoltán Balog told MTI by phone from Washington on Friday.
Balog met Rex Tillerson, the new US secretary of state, for brief, informal talks, and expressed hope “that US-Hungary ties would also enter a new era”. Tillerson supported the idea, the minister added.
Before the talks, Balog attended the annual National Prayer Breakfast of the US Congress.
Concerning the event, the minister said that the government was planning to organise a similar prayer breakfast in autumn this year with representatives of both the government and the opposition, as well as foreign guests.
On another subject, Balog said he had met Republican Representative Martha Roby, and discussed plans for the next demographic world forum and world congress of families to be held in Budapest.
