Hungary and Poland have had a joint responsibility for Europe’s peace, freedom and prosperity for a millennium, Orbán said in his message.

Please, allow me to take this opportunity to congratulate you upon your appointment as Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland. I believe that with joint action and in close cooperation we may create new opportunities for our countries on the European scene which will also contribute to the success of Central Europe

Viktor Orbán said he believed that by working closely together at the European level, he and Morawiecki could create opportunities for their countries that could also contribute to the success of the whole of central Europe.

The Hungarian Premier expressed his satisfaction that he and his new Polish colleague would have an opportunity to discuss the challenges and tasks ahead on the sidelines of this week’s European Council meeting. He wished Morawiecki well in attaining his goals during his time in office.

I wish you every success with your responsible assignment as well as with the attainment of the goals of the Polish Government under your leadership

Formerly known as a successful businessman and banker, Mateusz Morawiecki joined Jarosław Kaczyński‘s Law and Justice Party in March 2016. He also served as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Development and later as Minister of Finances in the previous Polish cabinet of Beata Szydło.
