The foreign minister said all of Hungary’s friends have triumphed in the midterm elections in the United States.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, noted that Idaho Senator Mike Crapo, and Congressmen Adrian Smith, Mike Kelly and Mike Waltz representing Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Florida, respectively, have won mandates in the vote. Those US politicians stood firmly by Hungary when the Biden administration had terminated its tax treaty with the country “in response” to the government’s decision not to raise taxes, the foreign minister said. “Our friends have assured me that if a Republican majority returns, they will also restore our bilateral tax cooperation. Congratulations!”
