The White House, President George W. Bush

President Bush Welcomes Prime Minister of Hungary
Remarks by the President and Prime Minister Medgyessy of Hungary in Photo Opportunity

As well as travel between our countries is expedited. We have talked about a visa policy that, admittedly, has created a problem in Hungary. The Prime Minister came and told me directly he expects me and my administration to do everything we can to expedite travel between Hungary and the United States --I appreciated your very strong statement on behalf of the Hungarian people -- and I assured him that we will work, as best we can, to make sure the visa system works like we want it to work, because in America we welcome people from all parts of the world. We welcome your business leaders. We welcome your students. We welcome your artists. It's in our nation's interest that we have a full interchange and exchange with the Hungarian people.

Thank you very much, Mr. President, for bringing up the visa issue. I especially requested the President to look into this matter of how this can be expedited. American-Hungarian relations are entering a new dimension now, because we have become members of the European Union, which means we represent a new equality.
