PM Orbán and Hungarian FM congratulates ÖVP on winning Austrian elections – UPDATE
Péter Szijjártó, Hungary’s foreign minister, has congratulated the Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) and its leader, Sebastian Kurz, on winning the Austrian election on Sunday.
Szijjártó spoke on the sidelines of a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg.
The minister praised the winning party as one which “has cooperated with Hungary on several important issues, including migration.”
“Sebastian Kurz has always spoken in clear terms and never been shackled by political correctness or hypocrisy”,
he said, and called for “politicians speaking clearly and in a straightforward manner about the gravest problems of Europe’s people”.
Answering a question, Szijjártó said the Visegrad countries did not see a necessity to enlarge the four-strong group, but they would stay in close cooperation with Austria.
