Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said democracy had emerged strengthened from an “unprecedented election campaign”. He said a new era has begun in global politics as well as in the economy which poses historic challenges to the whole world. Tackling these challenges requires “a new and courageous approach and new and innovative policies.” “Hungary stands ready for cooperation,” Szijjártó said.
Speaking to reporters later in London, Szijjártó said that as a NATO ally, Hungary wanted to cooperate with the United States and its new president as closely as possible.
Hungarian President János Áder congratulated Trump, saying the election’s outcome reflected the American citizens’ desire for change and renewal. The historical partnership between Hungary and the US, based on shared values, an appreciation of freedom and a commitment to democracy, will hopefully assist both countries in meeting these challenges, Áder said.
