Prime Minister Viktor Orbán paid his respects to Pope Benedict XVI after the retired pontiff's death in a telegram sent to the Vatican, the PM's press chief said, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

"In our memory, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI will always remain an example of high spirituality, and he will be remembered for his courage and commitment to interreligious dialogue," Orbán said.

He added that their conversations about faith, the sanctity of the family, and the importance of protecting our common Christian roots have strongly influenced his views ever since.

"Now, at a time of mourning, we join the prayers and offer our sincere condolences to the priests and followers of the Catholic Church," he added.
