Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on Tuesday congratulated Liz Truss on becoming the new British prime minister.
Relations between Hungary and the UK are based on firm foundations, characterised by mutual respect, common interests and goals, Orbán said in his message to Truss.
Current challenges make international partnership more important than ever, Orbán wrote, adding that
the Hungarian government is dedicated to further strengthening cooperation with the UK. Hungary will remain a loyal ally to the UK,
the prime minister said.
Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó has congratulated Liz Truss on being elected the leader of the Conservative Party and hence the next British prime minister, wishing her every success.
Szijjártó said on Facebook on Monday that the former foreign minister had been “a colleague with whom I was able to work very well”, and a fair negotiating partner.
