American senator's criticism is "one-sided" and "poorly informed," says Teleki

History

The president of the Hungarian American Coalition Maximilian Teleki is accusing the leading Democrat Benjamin L. Cardin of Maryland of taking political “cheap shots” against the conservative government in Budapest, reported Washington Times.

According to Teleki, the Senator  issued “one-sided, poorly informed” criticism of the Hungarian government in a Senate speech earlier this month.

Cardin, co-chairman of the congressional Commission for Security and Cooperation in Europe, complained in his remarks about a number of measures promoted by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, including the media law, judiciary reform and regional foreign policy of granting dual citizenship to ethnic Hungarians.

“I wish I could say the criticisms were ignorant, but sadly they are not. The are calculated and politically driven,” commented Teleki in a letter to the coalition’s 18 member organizations..
