Orbán congratulates new Slovak PM Odor

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on Tuesday congratulated Ludovit Odor on becoming Slovakia's new prime minister, Orbán's press chief said.

In his message to Odor, Orbán said Slovakia was an important ally and strategic partner of Hungary, underlining the two countries’ effective cooperation in recent years in spite of the pandemic, the economic crisis and the war in Ukraine, Bertalan Havasi told MTI.

Orbán assured his new Slovak counterpart that he was prepared to work with him in the interest of developing cooperation based on mutual respect.

In another letter, Orbán thanked Slovakia’s former prime minister Eduard Heger for the two countries’ constructive cooperation in recent years, Havasi said.

Orbán said he was convinced that “the strong alliance binding central European nations is especially important now when Europe faces historic challenges”. He underscored the Hungarian government’s commitment to strengthening Hungarian-Slovak ties and the cooperation between the Visegrad Group countries.
