New US Ambassador Eager To Cement Ties With Hungary
David B. Cornstein, the United States’ new ambassador to Hungary, said he wants to strengthen ties between the US and Hungary, and noted that his grandmother was born in Hungary.

“My family’s history illustrates the deep historical ties between our countries, and I am eager to make our relationship even stronger,” he said.

Cornstein presented his credentials to President János Áder on Monday.

At a hearing to confirm his appointment before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in May, Cornstein said he would focus on promoting American values and advancing US economic interests in Hungary.
