During an official visit to Washington, Zsolt Németh, the head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, said a “spectacular breakthrough” has taken place in ties between Hungary and the United States.
Németh told MTI that the Obama administration’s “patronising narrative” has been replaced by “dialogue based on mutual respect”.
The official is on a nine-day tour of the US, including talks on preparations for a military-defense cooperation agreement (DCA) which could be signed in the near future. Németh also spoke highly of the US role in endeavors to create energy security in central Europe.
On Thursday, the Hungarian delegation will head to Los Angeles and meet representatives of the Hungarian and Jewish communities.
