Pompeo Comments on Russia and China at a joint News conference in Budapest
Speaking at a joint news conference with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto in Budapest, Secretary of State Pompeo said: "Hungarians know all too well from their history that an authoritarian Russia will never be a friend to the freedom and sovereignty of smaller nations."
Ahead of his visits to Budapest and Bratislava, US officials said, Secretary Pompeo hoped to reverse what they called a decade of US disengagement in Central Europe that created a vacuum Russia and China have exploited.
Over the course of the past 10 years, the officials said, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese leaders have become much more aggressive in the region and made inroads.
