Statement of the Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland

In response to the comments and over-interpretation of the words of the President of the Republic of Poland during his meeting with the press on March 18th , the Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland has been authorised to issue the following statement: 1. The essence of the words of the President of Poland and his main message during the meeting with the press on March 18th was to present once again the reasons and grounds for Poland’s involvement in the process of stabilisation and democratisation of Iraq. “Iraq today – without Saddam Hussein is a truly better Iraq than with Saddam Hussein” – said the President. He also warned against political decisions that would lead to destabilisation of the situation in Iraq. Poland will withdraw from Iraq only after the successful completion of the stabilisation mission and she counts on effective cooperation with the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, other NATO and UN nations. 2. The President reminded that Saddam Hussein had tried to make an impression that the had weapons of mass destruction and could use it, and that was an important reason for taking up the mission in Iraq in the frameworks of joint strategy of the multinational coalition in the fight against international terrorism. 3. The President stated that in the fight against terrorism the basic issue is to stay united and in solidarity amongst the democratic nations. Showing weakness in front of terrorist attacks undermines the foundations of democracy, security of the peoples, and peace in the world.
