Today, Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan and Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto signed a U.S.‑Hungary Defense Cooperation Agreement (DCA). The DCA builds on many aspects of the strong U.S.-Hungary defense relationship and will facilitate greater partnerships to address shared threats and global challenges.

The new DCA illustrates the enduring strength of the U.S.-Hungary relationship, Hungary’s commitment to strengthen ties with the United States, and the U.S. commitment to bolster bilateral ties in Central Europe.
