Hungary is hoping for a better relationship with the new US President

The Hungarian government is expecting the advent of a better world with the election of the new American commander-in-chief

Hungary is hoping for a better relationship with the United States of America once Donald Trump becomes president in 2017, according to officials.

According to János Lázár, the minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office, the Hungarian government is expecting the advent of a better world with the election of the new American commander-in-chief.

Lázár pointed out: the government hopes that a fair partnership may evolve between the two countries. He reiterated that while Hungary has had disputes with the United States to date, these disputes had nothing to do with the American people but with the Democratic Party.

In his view, these stemmed from the fact that Fidesz and the national side did not agree with them on the values, based on which they should reorganize the country after 2010, while the Hungarian government’s anti-immigration policy has also been criticized.

Hungary looks upon the new presidency as a new beginning, and it may also be hopeful for the world, and may bring about stability, he said.

Lázár expressed hope that in the future Hungary and its government will be given the respect it is entitled to. He added that economic and military cooperation between Hungary and the United States to date has also been excellent.

Lázár also revealed that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has not yet spoken to the newly elected president of the United States.

He found it edifying that those who wanted to understand life in the United States from the press in the past year, have received a biased account of reality. "The press has lost its ability to inform readers of the actual situation. Instead, the American press has become one of the protagonists in shaping reality," he said.
