Hungarian-US political cooperation “so far burdened with open issues” can again be “put back to the level of the smooth economic and defence cooperation”, Szijjártó said. Now that the US has sent an ambassador to Hungary and granted approval to Hungary’s new ambassador to serve in the US, the diplomacies of the two countries will need to “focus on the future”, Szijjártó said.
He added that Colleen Bradley Bell, the new US ambassador, whom he had met on Thursday night, has indicated “readiness and openness to considerably improve the political cooperation”.
Réka Szemerkényi, the new Hungarian ambassador to the US, is expected to arrive in Washington in mid-February, Szijjártó said.
He announced that in February, apart from German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the prime minister of Georgia, and the foreign ministers of Poland, Serbia and Montenegro are also scheduled to visit Hungary.
