The United States can impose sanctions on Hungarian people of influence

444, citing several independent diplomatic sources he is writing, the United States may plan a new measure to punish the Hungarian government. Among the newspaper’s sources, it also indicated that, similar to the 2014 ban, America may impose sanctions on influential people.

David Pressman, the US ambassador to Budapest, called a press conference on Wednesday afternoon. He did not officially specify any topic for the event, citing 444 sources who said he might announce sanctions.

The deterioration of diplomatic relations between the Hungarian and American governments can also be seen from the way that Pressman and the Hungarian Foreign Minister, Peter Sjärto, have been tense on several occasions in the last period. David Pressman, for example, was very critical of the Hungarian government already at the beginning of February, because according to him “politicians in the Hungarian government often talk about promoting peace, but – from condemning sanctions to accepting Russia’s cease-fire proposals – continue to express views Consider supported by Putin. “We join the Hungarian government’s call for peace, but these calls must be addressed to Vladimir Putin,” he added.

Soon after, Secretary of State Peter Szijjarto responded to this, saying that he was completely uninterested in what Pressman thought. And after the joint photo of Viktor Orban with Trump on April 3, Pressman published a photo of the two politicians with the text that Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Sjäjjarto said a few weeks ago: “We show our respect by not interfering in the internal politics of other countries, we do not express an opinion, we do not try to influence it. He said that the fact that Orban named US Ambassador Victor Pressman to Pressman is not hostile in itself.

Last year, America canceled the 1979 double taxation agreement with Hungary. Szijjártó has previously said that America acted in response to the fact that the Hungarian government had not given its approval for the introduction of global minimum taxes. Since then, the Hungarian government has also discussed the matter with the OECD: however, at the beginning of April, Washington informed the Hungarian government that it was still not ready to reopen the relevant negotiations.
