Ambassador Cornstein’s Statement Following Parliament’s Final Approval of Legislation to Ratify the New Defense Cooperation Agreement between the United States and Hungary
July 2, 2019
Parliament’s approval of the new Defense Cooperation Agreement between the United States and Hungary is a win for both of our countries. This Agreement will deepen our already robust security cooperation and help us prepare for the 21st century challenges we face together as allies.
I am confident our alliance will become even stronger in the coming months and years as Hungary moves closer to its NATO defense spending commitments and advances the modernization of its military through purchases of NATO-compatible equipment, including state-of-the-art technology from the United States.
