The opposition party leader talked about his agenda to mno.hu during the spring indicating that the moment would come sooner or later that the two sides must meet either privately or as part of official programs.
Vona then, indicated that in the first half of next year he would contact the US Embassy to initiate a meeting with the US ambassador.
Vona argued that a dialogue between the two sides was absolutely necessary because Jobbik was the strongest opposition party in the country and preparing for government.
A meeting could provide an opportunity to the Jobbik president to give first hand information to the ambassador about his party's ideas and future plans.
Mno.hu has learned from US Embassy sources in Budapest that the US ambassador was open for such meeting. The source also told mno.hu that the embassy does not comment on planned meetings with anyone.
US embassy officials meet a wide range of individuals on the political and social spectrum all the time to better understand the views and concerns of the Hungarian people. This does not mean that we agree with the views or policies of those individuals said US Embassy Spokeswoman Elizabeth Webster.
