Euro-Atlantic integration based on shared values is the key to central Europe and Hungary’s future, Péter Szijjártó, the foreign minister, said in a letter to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Szijjártó thanked his US counterpart for congratulating the Visegrad Group on the 30th anniversary of its establishment. As V4 president from July this year, he said Hungary wanted to “build on the successes of the past 30 years”, further strengthening central Europe, while deepening cooperation with the US “based on shared interests and values”. Hungary, he added, was “proud of the successes achieved with its V4 allies”, also noting its membership in NATO and the European Union. The minister said the Visegrad Group had become “the engine of cooperation and development in central Europe”.
