Both I and the people of Poland would like to sincerely congratulate you on the award of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Mr. President, the Prize is a token of appreciation of your efforts aimed at enhancing peace and security and bolstering effective cooperation of the nations of the world for the good of all humanity. Your activity in the international forum has given many nations hope that a safer and more just world will be created – a world without terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.
I am very glad that we had a chance to meet, even briefly, at the General Assembly of the United Nations Organisation in New York. I hope we will again have an opportunity to exchange opinions and experiences soon, when you visit Poland. I would also like to assure you that both I and the people of Poland support your activity aimed at protecting freedom, democracy and human rights.
We respect both you and the people of America and we wish you all the best.
