Hungary will continue to build an “open and honest cooperation based on mutual benefits” with Slovenia in the next four years, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in Slovenia’s Lendava (Lendva) on Friday.
Orban held talks with former Slovenian prime minister Janez Jansa and Janez Magyar, a candidate of Jansa’s Slovenian Democratic Party in that country’s early elections set for June 3.
Orban referred to close ties between the peoples of Hungary and Slovenia, and said that his government was ready to promote the economy of Slovenia’s northeastern region, home to an ethnic Hungarian community.
Orban said the goal of his visit was to speak for Jansa, a “committed and courageous” politician, who could ensure that Slovenia is led by a “strong, stable, determined and brave government”, which the country needs.
The Hungarian prime minister thanked Slovenia Hungarians for their support to his Fidesz party’s recent election win, helping the country to a “civic, national, and Christian” government.
Jansa thanked the Hungarian government for its support to Slovenia’s Hungarian community and praised Hungary for “setting an example” in protecting the European Union’s external borders.
