The Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland has been awarded to Csaba Latorcai, deputy state secretary for social relations in the Hungarian Prime Minister’s Office.
Handing over the honour to Latorcai on Friday, Stanisław Karczewski, Marshal of the Senate, noted that the two nations had always lived in great friendship.
Csaba Latorcai said that the 1,000-year friendship between the two nations is a special heritage “of all the struggles fought together” for freedom and independence.
He added that the two nations can build their future on a strong foundation, Christianity, which “guaranteed their survival through several centuries”.
