PM Orbán's letter to Eduard Heger on his appointment as Slovakia's prime minister

The prime minister welcomed that bilateral relations had developed in every field of cooperation over the past years, expressing hope that the two countries could further strengthen them.

Dear Mr Prime Minister,

Allow me to extend my sincere congratulations and best wishes to You on the occasion of your appointment as Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic.

Hungary considers Slovakia a key ally and a strategic partner. I am pleased that the relations between our countries have developed in recent years in all possible areas. I look forward to further strengthening our wide-ranging cooperation, and despite the extraordinary epidemiological challenges, I trust that together we will be able to maintain the role of the V4 group as the growth engine of Europe.

I hope to meet You in person soon to discuss all issues on our political and economic agenda.

I avail myself of this opportunity to wish Your Excellency good health and much success in your highly responsible duties.

Yours sincerely,

Viktor Orbán
