"Today we held productive negotiations with representatives of the Hungarian government on the status of Central European University, a world-class institution that is accredited in New York State.

"We met to discuss a new law that threatens CEU’s continued presence in Hungary and the urgent need to preserve academic freedom. We made good progress in talks with Kristóf Altusz, Deputy State Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

"We look forward to a speedy resolution that safeguards the integrity of CEU and its vital educational mission."
