BUDAPEST - The United States called on Hungary to suspend implementation of a law Washington says threatens the continued operation of a Budapest university founded by US financier George Soros.

Hungarian President Janos Ader signed off on the legislation on Monday despite protests against it in Budapest and condemnation abroad. Another mass rally against the law is planned for later on Wednesday.

"We're urging the government of Hungary to suspend implementation of the law," State Department spokesman Mark C. Toner said late on Tuesday according to a transcript of a Washington press briefing posted online.
