In his letter to American President-elect Joe Biden, Polish President Andrzej Duda emphasized the importance of the Polish-American alliance
“Following the vote of the Electoral College, I would like to congratulate you on successfully concluding the election process to become the 46th President of the United States, and wish you a very successful term,” Duda wrote in his letter to Biden.
The Polish president underlined that “the relationship between the Republic of Poland and the United States is the shining beacon of what a true strategic partnership is, and what can be achieved while working together.”
The Polish head of state also stressed that Poland and America “share ideals and values, the core of which are undoubtedly liberty, justice, democracy, and the principal role of international law. On these, we have built strong foundations of our bilateral cooperation – in fact, the strongest and most profitable to our countries than ever before in history. Within the framework of the Polish-American Strategic Dialogue, we have extended our partnership in crucial areas, namely security, defense, economic cooperation, and innovation.”
He emphasized that Poland, along with other Central-Eastern European countries, established the Three Seas Initiative – a platform for cooperation in three crucial sectors: infrastructure, energy and digital.
“The United States, due to its support and involvement in the Initiative, has not only risen to the status of Strategic Partner, but also decided to provide a considerable amount of funding to the Three Seas Fund aimed at implementing energy projects across the region,” Duda pointed out in the letter.
The Polish President also referred to Polish-American cooperation in terms of security. He added that “Poland has become a destination for American LNG, securing diversification of sources as well as its energy security, thereby becoming an energy hub for the entire region. My hope is that this fruitful cooperation will continue under your leadership.”
Duda underlined that “the Polish-American relations have become a pillar of ever-growing importance for the Transatlantic and European security and stability.” Poland has become a destination for American LNG, securing diversification of sources as well as its energy security, thereby becoming an energy hub for the entire region. My hope is that this fruitful cooperation will continue under your leadership. He explained that Poland is “particularly pleased that during the 2016 NATO Summit in Warsaw, under the leadership of President Barack Obama and Yours – as the then Vice President – the United States decided to enhance its military presence and posture in Poland, simultaneously strengthening the Alliance’s Eastern flank and building resilience of NATO as a whole.”
The president also noted that “today we are in a dire need to address other challenges to the international security equilibrium rooted in imperial sentiments, as well as the abuse of power and human rights. We, as the international community, need to stand firmly and speak with one powerful voice for sovereignty, democratic rights, territorial integrity, and freedom of nations.”
Duda assured that Poland will continue to lend its support to the democratic change across its eastern border. He wrote that hoped that the US will continue to work with Poland in that regard.
The Polish president also wrote in context of the pandemic and Polish-American cooperation in that area:
“I sincerely believe that our cooperation will also be paramount in terms of battling the coronavirus pandemic, with which the international community has been intensely fighting for almost a year now. The negative impact of Covid-19 on international public health, economic development and cooperation, as well as people-to-people contacts remain difficult to predict. Let’s work together to combat and minimize them.”
“Mr. President-elect, permit me once again to congratulate you on your victory, and wish you — on behalf of the Polish Nation — a fruitful term as the 46th President of the United States. I look forward to all the meetings and discussions we will have in future, both in the bilateral format as well as wider international formats. In that regard, allow me to extend a warm invitation for you to visit Poland,” President Andrzej Duda concluded his letter.
