Orbán Receives More Int'l Praise For Election Win
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has continued to receive congratulations from foreign dignitaries on his Fidesz party’s recent election victory, including some from Putin.

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg congratulated Orbán by phone, Orbán’s press chief told MTI.

Orbán and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who has recently been re-elected Egypt’s president, mutually congratulated each other on the phone, Bertalan Havasi said. He quoted the Egyptian president as saying that high turnout at the polls indicate Hungarian people’s massive support for Orbán’s government.

Orbán was also congratulated by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Montenegrin Prime Minister Duško Marković, as well as Alexis Tsipras, the head of the Greek government.
