“More and more people in the US understand the work that the Hungarian government is carrying out,” Kovács told MTI late on Thursday, insisting that the tone of conversation had changed markedly in recent years.
Referring to areas of Hungarian policymaking such as “our support for persecuted Christians, our economic achievements and approach to illegal migration”, Kovács said the government’s consistency in policymaking over the past eight years was valued.
Regarding a letter signed by 22 Democrat lawmakers to the US State Department criticising Hungary and the state of Hungary’s media, Kovács insisted the letter was part of “international left-wing political campaigning against Hungary”.
Kovács said Hillary Clinton’s speech in Oxford last week, in which the former secretary of state criticised Brexit as well as Tory MEPs for siding with Hungary on the Sargentini report, was part of the campaign before the US mid-term elections.
“The international left wing wants to cast Hungary as a black sheep,” he said.
