WARSAW (Reuters) - Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s victory in Sunday’s election is a confirmation of Central Europe’s emancipation policy, Poland’s deputy foreign minister and envoy to the European Union, Konrad Szymanski, said on Monday.

“It’s a confirmation of Central Europe’s emancipation policy,” Szymanski told the private TVN-24 broadcaster when asked what Orban’s victory means for the EU.

“Emancipation not directed at fighting anybody but at making Central Europe visible as a very constructive European and European Union partner.”
