Abstract: A month after the Hungarian parliament passed the Media Act, U.S. Ambassador Ian Kelly delivered this statement to the OSCE Permanent Council. "The United States wishes to register its concern over the new media law," says Kelly in the statement, noting that the law "has raised significant international concern about the future of freedom of expression in Hungary". The United States "call on Hungary to uphold media freedom," Kelly said, and "urge Hungarian officials to consider the concerns raised about the law, including those cited by [OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja] Mijatovic, and ensure that freedom of expression, including media freedom, is fully respected in Hungary".
