PM Orbán Congratulates New Austrian Chancellor, Saying 'Austria a Prime Political & Economic Ally'
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has sent a letter of congratulations to Alexander Schallenberg on his appointment as the chancellor of Austria.

In the letter, Orbán said he was glad to have the opportunity to work with a politician “committed to the cause of Europe’s future while showing great respect” towards Hungary.

The prime minister called Austria a prime political and economic ally, and he assured Schallenberg of his personal commitment towards the development of Hungarian-Austrian cooperation “based on mutual trust and respect”.

Orbán said he trusted that bilateral cooperation would enhance regional competitiveness based on common European values as well as the bloc itself as a community of strong nations rooted in Christian traditions.
