How to Relate or Join Zonal Statistic result to Polygon

Am I missing something basic?

I have a polygon layer of language borders over South East Asia, with the only unique field in the attribute table being the FID. I need to know the min and max elevation within each polygon which I have successfully done using the Spatial Analyst tool, Zonal Statistics (using language polygons & DEM). The result of this tool gives an attribute table with fields, Rowid, Value & Count.

My problem is I would like the result of the Zonal Stats tool (Value in the attribute table) to relate to or join or somehow link to the original polygon but I can see no common field on which to do this. Ultimately I need the min and max values in the attribute table of the language polygons.

I am a newby to this so any help would be gratefully received. Thank you.
