Prime Minister Viktor Orbán expressed his condolences and offered help to Croatia, which was hit by an earthquake on Sunday morning, the prime minister’s press chief, Bertalan Havasi told MTI.
In his letter to Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, Orbán said he was “saddened” by the reports on the natural disaster, which caused damage and injuries in and around Zagreb. Havasi cited Orbán’s letter, saying
I believe that in these trying times it is important for the nations of Central Europe to express their solidarity with one another in every possible way. On behalf of the Hungarian people, I would like to express my sympathy and offer the assistance of Hungary.
Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó offered his condolences to those injured, and wished them a speedy recovery in a Facebook post.
Croatia can count on Hungary’s help in the reconstruction, he said.
