BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban congratulated his Polish nationalist allies for their victory at a general election on Sunday.

“There was a very important election in Poland from Hungary’s point of view today, where the Polish ruling party has secured a majority of seats in parliament and will be able to form a government on its own,” Orban told a news conference.

“We congratulate our Polish friends.”
