Relations between Hungary and the United States are the best they have ever been, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Facebook on Friday. The minister reacted to comments by US Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who recently categorised Poland and Hungary as "totalitarian regimes", comparing them to Belarus. Szijjarto said US President Donald Trump and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban shared similar views on illegal immigration, border protection, security and the need to support families and protect Christian communities. The minister insisted that it was because of these policies that Biden had "involved Hungary in the presidential election campaign", adding that his comments "have nothing to do with reality".
