Poland and Hungary jointly worked to achieve freedom for both nations, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said in Budapest on Monday. The president took part in ceremonies marking the reburial of Imre Nagy, the Hungarian PM in the times of the 1956 revolution.

 

"Every action in favour of Hungary's freedom was a step in favour of Poland's freedom. And vice versa, every step towards freedom in Poland, among others, the June 4, 1989 elections, also meant a greater chance of freedom for Hungarians" said Komorowski.

 

The president added that for Poles and Hungarians the community of Polish-Hungarian fate and sense of friendship and brotherhood is obvious.

 

The Polish president also stressed that "the Visegrad Group countries agreed that they will together celebrate the 25th anniversary of freedom" and added that such joint celebrations of joyful moments in history, like the overthrow of communism, also strengthen friendship among nations.

 

In Budapest, the presidents of the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland paid tribute to the Hungarian freedom fighters and victims of the 1956 events.

 

The ceremonies were held, inter alia, at the Rakoskereshtur cemetery where presidents laid flowers at the grave of Prime Minister Nagy. Bronislaw Komorowski, Milos Zeman, Joachim Gauck, Andrej Kiska and Janos Ader also visited the Museum "House of Terror," which commemorates the victims of totalitarian regimes (Nazi and Stalinist) in Hungary, and the heroes of the 1956 Revolution.

 

The presidents also attended a lunch given out by Hungarian President Janos Ader. The discussion was devoted to, among others, issues related to security, including energy security in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as preparations for the NATO Summit in Wales in September.
