Gergely Gulyás, head of the Prime Minister’s Office, said that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s Monday visit to Hungary would be a major event. He told a press briefing that the United States is Hungary’s “greatest ally in NATO”. He added that Hungary has “no similar alliance with Russia but a reasonable business partnership with it is in the interest of the whole of Europe”.
Answering a question, Gulyás said it was “no surprise” that Pompeo’s agenda includes meetings with “organisations also financed from the US”. According to press reports, Pompeo will meet leaders of the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (TASZ) and the Helsinki Committee.
