In a letter to Hiroyuki Hosoda, his Japanese counterpart, Kövér remembered Abe as a “great politician with foresight”, recalling a meeting with him in Japan in 2016. “With his death, Japan has lost an outstanding politician and Hungary an understanding and good friend,” he added. Abe was assassinated on Friday.
