Communication that is taking place between Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and the leaders of the Italian right-wing parties expected to form the government is much more intensive than the usual diplomatic formulas, the PM's press chief told state news wire MTI on Monday.

Since Sunday's parliamentary election in Italy, making Giorgia Meloni the country's prime minister-designate, several messages and letters have been exchanged between the Hungarian and Italian partners, Bertalan Havasi said.

Orbán wrote to Meloni that the success of the Brothers of Italy party is the victory of the conservative-Christian values that "form the basis of our cooperation and friendship".

"I look forward to our future cooperation in order to preserve the peace of our countries and Europe, to restart the European economy, and to alleviate the energy crisis," Orbán wrote.

Orbán also contacted Matteo Salvini, the leader of the party League, and Silvio Berlusconi, the president of the party Forza Italia, congratulating both of them on the electoral victory of the Italian right-wing parties and thanking them for their friendship and cooperation.
