Newly elected Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni conveyed greetings to the leader of the March of Independence Association, Robert Bąkiewicz. Meloni was invited by the association to participate in this year’s Nov. 11 March in Warsaw to celebrate the Polish National Independence Day.
She replayed in a letter that she would not be able to come to Poland due to her responsibilities; however, she wished the highest attendance possible for the march.
Meloni thanked Robert Bąkiewicz for his message filled with words of encouragement prior to Italy’s parliamentary elections on Sept. 25.
“I wish you success of the manifestation and I take this opportunity to renew my sentiments of friendship for the Polish nation,” assured Meloni in a letter sent to Bąkiewicz, shared by the Salon24 news outlet’s journalist Marcin Dobski.
Bąkiewicz, the leader of the March of Independence Association, said that Meloni’s letter will be “read aloud” at the gathering on Nov. 11.
The March of Independence takes place in Warsaw. It is the 12th time it has been organized by Bąkiewicz’s Association. The organizers estimate that around 1 million Poles have attended the marches so far.
