Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, congratulated former Slovak PM Robert Fico whose Smer-Social Democracy won Saturday’s general election in Slovakia in a Facebook post on Sunday.
Minister Szijjártó said the election result gives a chance for a stable government to be formed in Slovakia again and for Slovak-Hungarian relations to develop further. In recent years, all achievements that helped relations between the two countries – such as the construction of bridges or the opening of border crossings – have been the result of agreements concluded with the former government of Robert Fico, the foreign minister said.
In addition, Robert Fico thinks the same way about war, migration and gender issues as Hungary. His victory offers a serious chance to strengthen the V4 alliance, he added.
