Hungary-US relations go from strength-to-strength

Zsolt Németh stated that the US and NATO had key roles to play in preserving security and stability in central Europe.

The head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee has said a breakthrough in Hungary-US relations took place this year.

Speaking at a gala event organized by the Hungarian American Coalition (HAC) in Washington, DC, Zsolt Németh underlined the importance of cross-border national unity and stated that political dialogue is again worthy of our historical, cultural and allied relations.

During the official trip to the United States, a Hungarian delegation met leading congressional representatives, government figures, a State Department secretary of state for the region, as well as representatives of Jewish organizations, the Israeli ambassador and Hungarian organizations.

According to MTI, Németh said the Israeli ambassador and Jewish organizations had expressed great appreciation for Hungary’s commitment to combat all efforts in the UN and European Union that threatened Israel’s security. He also said Hungary supports the global application of the Magnitsky law initiated by the US.

Németh noted that Kossuth House has been purchased by the state, and it has been handed over to American organizations so they can carry out lobbying activities to promote the interests of the global Hungarian community.

Németh stated that the US and NATO had key roles to play in preserving security and stability in central Europe.

Finally, Németh emphasized the United States’ role in Hungary’s transition to democracy in the 1989-1990 regime change. He said Hungary’s change of regime had been a fulfilment of the hopes of the generation of Hungarians who had emigrated to the US after Hungary’s failed anti-Soviet uprising of 1956.
