Szijjarto congratulates Polish counterpart on appointment

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Friday congratulated Radoslaw Sikorski on his appointment as Poland's new foreign minister.

Following a phone call with Sikorski, Szijjarto said on Facebook that they “see eye to eye on more things than we would have thought”.

“I wished him much success since the success of brotherly Poland is in the interest of Hungary,” Szijjarto said.

Both parties consider the Visegrad Group as instrumental in promoting shared national interests, Szijjarto said, adding that they were also in agreement concerning the importance of border control.

“We also agreed that the rights of national minorities should be respected as a European value to be maintained in all circumstances,” Szijjarto said.

According to the Facebook post, Sikorski accepted an invitation for an official visit to Hungary.
