"We find the information about tapping-relaying devices worrisome and expect the U.S. ambassador--as requested already--to clarify the situation as soon as possible," the ministry said in a statement.
The U.S. embassy had no immediate comment when contacted by The Wall Street Journal.
The issue will be discussed Thursday when Hungarian Foreign Minister Janos Martonyi meets Victoria Nuland, U.S. State Department assistant state secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs.
Ms. Nuland is to visit Hungary for a two-day meeting of the Visegrad 4 countries and the Central European Initiative. The V4 group comprises Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary, while the CEI is a forum of 18 countries in the region that aims to promote political and economic cooperation among its members.
Hungary hasn't yet received a response from the U.S. as to whether Hungarians were subjects of U.S. surveillance, Mr. Martonyi said at a press conference Wednesday.
