Polish MP receives high Hungarian award

Tomasz Zielinski, a deputy of the Law and Justice party in the Polish lower house, on Wednesday received the Order of Merit of Hungary, Knight's Cross, from Hungarian Ambassador Orsolya Zsuzsanna Kovacs, in Warsaw.

Zielinski has been recognised for his efforts in strengthening social ties between Hungary and Poland, as well as promoting Hungary in his country.

In her laudation, the ambassador highlighted Zielinski as one “promoting Polish-Hungarian ties even when it was made difficult by external factors”. His initiative – a competition for Polish secondary school students about the friendship between Hungary and Poland – “was aimed at the youngest, who can continue the construction of ties,” she added.

The competition has been held twice, with over 2,000 students participating.
