US official chosen to deal with Hungarian issues

The administration of US President Donald Trump has nominated Wess Mitchell as the US government official to deal with European and Eurasian affairs, among them matters relating to Hungary, according to Index.

Mitchell is the director of the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) think tank. Index’s diplomatic source does not expect the nomination of Mitchell to instigate a complete shift in US-Hungary relations largely because of the institute’s preoccupation with Russian propaganda and disinformation.
