Hungarian President János Áder has congratulated Volodymyr Zelensky, the recently elected Ukrainian president, Áder’s office told MTI on Tuesday.
In his letter, Áder congratulated Zelensky on “winning by a large margin” and said it was of primary importance to Hungary that its largest neighbor should be a stable, democratic and prosperous country.
“The Hungarian people have always looked on with sympathy, and actively supported the Ukrainian nation’s aims to build an independent country based on European values and the harmonic coexistence of peoples and ethnic minorities,” Áder said in the letter.
He expressed hope that Zelensky’s presidency will open a new chapter in the two countries’ relations, and that the ethnic Hungarian and Ukrainian minorities living in the two countries will “build the bridges” in those relations.
