Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Ambassador to Hungary David Pressman presented his Letter of Credence to President of Hungary Katalin Novák at Sándor Palace in Budapest. 

The Ambassador was accompanied by his partner Daniel Basila, their children, and Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Derek Westfall.

During their discussion in the Blue Salon, Ambassador Pressman expressed to President Novák the significance of the long-standing relationship between the United States and Hungary, particularly as European and global security are under attack as a result of Russia's unprovoked war against Ukraine. 

Pressman noted their productive conversation, saying the two discussed the need to strengthen the U.S.-Hungary relationship. 

He said, "In these complicated times, with a land war in Europe, it is more important than ever for our two countries to be united in opposing Russian aggression and working together to advance regional and international security on the basis of fundamental transatlantic values." 

After departing Sándor Palace, Ambassador Pressman traveled to Heroes' Square, where he laid a wreath at the Monument of Hungarian Heroes.  After laying the wreath, Pressman noted the significance of honoring the bravery and loyalty of Hungarians, long-time allies, and friends of the United States and its people.
