“I am convinced that the long-standing cooperation between Fidesz and the CDU has greatly contributed over the past two-and-a-half decades to the development of Hungarian-German ties and the outstanding economic success of our countries,” the prime minister wrote in his letter. “In this spirit, I am looking forward to working together in the future and I can assure you that you can rely on me and on Fidesz’s support to advance our pragmatic cooperation based on mutual respect,” he added.
