US chargé d’affaires David Kostelancik’s recent remarks concerning press freedom in Hungary were “a lot of nonsense”, he said.
“More US diplomats who speak Hungarian are needed,” Lázár said, insisting that “if they spoke our language they would see that hundreds of articles criticising the government are published daily.”
He added it was “far from the case that criticism of the government was missing from the Hungarian press”.
