    Blinken affirms US-Poland friendship, partnership, and alliance on Constitution of 3 May anniversary

    “On behalf of the United States of America, I extend our best wishes to the people of Poland as you honor the adoption of your first constitution 232 years ago today,” US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken wrote in a statement. The US Ambassador to Poland, Mark Brzezinski, also sent his wishes to the Poles.

    In the statement, Blinken recalled US President Joe Biden’s words from his recent visit to Warsaw.

    “As President Biden said during his visit to Warsaw earlier this year, in moments of great upheaval and uncertainty, knowing what you stand for and knowing who you stand with makes all the difference. The people of Poland know that better than most – it is the true meaning of solidarity. The United States is proud to stand with Poland as friends, partners, and Allies, working side-by-side to defend freedom from tyranny and aggression, support Ukraine, impose consequences on Russia, and strengthen our collective security on NATO’s Eastern Flank,”

    he wrote in a statement.

    Blinken stressed that he “looks forward to continuing to grow our partnership and our friendship in the year ahead.”

    “Building on our shared values, we grow stronger and more successful because of our cooperation on important issues like clean and reliable energy security and expanded economic ties,”

    the Secretary of State pointed out.

    On the 232nd anniversary of the Constitution of 3 May US Ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski also wished the Polish people.

    “On behalf of the American people, I extend warm wishes to the Polish people on the occasion of the 3rd of May Constitution Day. Throughout history, Poles have been a symbol of perseverance, hope, and freedom,”

    Brzezinski wrote on Twitter.

    As he pointed out, “the friendship linking the US and Poland has never been stronger than it is today, and I look forward to further strengthening our ties”.

    “Together we are stronger, together we are safer, together we are better,”

    he stressed.
