Hungary to give women with 4 or more kids life tax exemption

  • Hungarian leader Viktor Orban has made

Secretary of State Michael Pompeo came close to issuing an us-or-them ultimatum to nations buying from Huawei Technology Co., saying in Hungary that contracts with the Chinese networking giant could limit the availability of USA equipment. "But second, we have seen this all around the world".

He said that the United States was particularly concerned about a growing Chinese presence in the region and warned European allies against using technology from Huawei in their communications networks, saying it would make it more hard for Washington to "partner alongside them".

"We're fine with companies competing, but they have got to do so in a way that's fair and open and transparent, and they can't do so with anything other than an economic motive", he said. He also made the point repeatedly that Hungary accounts for only 1.2 percent of European Union trade with China.

"We want to make sure we identify (to) them the opportunities and the risks of using that equipment", Pompeo told reporters during a visit to Budapest.

China's Foreign Ministry on Tuesday accused the USA of "bullying".

A senior USA official travelling with Pompeo said the Trump administration was pursuing a strategy similar to that in Asia, where for years the United States has been seeking to curb China's power. "It has even made naked threats and provocations against China's relations with other countries, damaging the rights and interests of legitimate development and cooperation with Chinese companies", said spokesperson Hua Chunying.


Pompeo didn't elaborate on what "important American systems" he was referring to.

Pompeo, the first USA secretary of state to visit Slovakia in 14 years, will meet President Andrej Kiska, Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini and a group of students on the half-day stop in Bratislava. The administration has argued for providers of next-generation mobile gear to rely on USA companies such as Cisco Systems Inc.

As part of talks with Hungarian foreign minister Peter Szikkarto, Pompeo said he discussed the dangers of "allowing China to gain a bridgehead". This would, in turn, lead to the U.S. keeping those countries at arms length when handling sensitive information. The inscription reads: "For us Hungary is the first!"

"I hereby announce that women who have given birth to and raised a minimum of four children will be exempt from the payment of personal income tax for the rest of their lives", Orban said near the end of his speech.

Hua, the Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman, thanked Szijjarto for his "independent, objective and unbiased remarks".
