Prime Minister Viktor Orbán expressed his best wishes to his Polish counterpart Mateusz Morawiecki in a letter on Thursday, on the occasion of Poland’s National Independence Day. “Your national day is a great tribute to all the brave Polish patriots who fought for independence,” Orbán said. “After 123 years, the nation of Poland returned to the map of the world by uniting its people, and as a sovereign state, it took part in shaping the future of Europe,” he added. “It fills me with great joy that Hungary could also contribute to the victorious fight for Polish independence in the 20th century,” he said. “Ever since,” he said, “the alliance between Hungary and Poland has grown stronger and our two countries together are eager to provide common answers to the challenges of our times, especially in the face of ideologies that question our sovereignty and traditional values”. “I can assure you that Poland will always be able to rely on the dedication of Hungary to achieving our common goals,” he added.
