Hungary works with the United States to achieve shared international objectives, particularly in the security, law enforcement, economic, and energy areas. The United States engages with Hungary to reduce the threats posed by terrorism and nuclear proliferation and to strengthen shared transatlantic values such as promoting human rights and the rule of law.
