Farewell note of Ambassador György Szapáry

My four year term as ambassador to the United States has come to an end and I return to Hungary at the end of January. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as the Ambassador of Hungary to the United States, where as a 1956 refugee from communism I spent a substantial part of my life before returning to Hungary in early 1990. The United States thus has a special place in my heart. Serving my beloved homeland in a country I also love has been a profoundly fulfilling experience.
