The United States is likely to change its policy toward Hungary, according to Zoltán Balog, minister of Human Capacities.
The minister said that the Trump Administration is taking the United States in a new direction which could spell changes for Hungary.
The minister made the remarks during an official visit to Washington, where he 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. The minister said that the government was planning to organize a similar prayer breakfast in autumn this year with representatives of both the government and the opposition, as well as foreign guests.
Minister Balog also said he had met Republican Congresswoman Martha Roby, and discussed plans for the next demographic world forum and world congress of families to be held in Budapest.
