Condolence Letter by the Vice President to the People of Poland

April 14, 2010

It is with a heavy heart that I write these words. I had the honor and privilege of knowing President Kaczynski - recently having been with him in Poland as we worked out the new missile defense agreement.

His loss and the loss of Mrs. Kaczynski along with so many dedicated servants of the Polish people is almost too much to ask the Polish people to endure - but endure you will as you always have.

Please know that I am an admirer of all that is Polish - and that you can count on my country and all Americans to continue to stand with you.

With deep sympathy.

Joe Biden
