Prime Minister Viktor Orban's "working meeting" with US President Donald Trump in Washington, DC, on May 13 will be "momentous", Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told a press conference in Brussels on Thursday. The Hungarian government received the official invitation on Wednesday, and it has already confirmed it, the minister said. The talks will touch on the region's security, energy supply, the two countries' bilateral ties and defence cooperation, he said. "Hungary, of course, sees the US as a strategic partner. Our views are on many issues similar to that of the current US administration. We think similarly about migration, the protection of Christianity and security," he said. The US is also Hungary's most important exports market outside the EU, Szijjarto added.
