MAY 2, 2022


Warsaw, Poland — Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Congressional delegation held a bilateral meeting with President Andrzej Duda of Poland:

“Today, our high-level Congressional delegation had the distinct privilege of meeting with President Andrzej Duda of Poland, a valued partner in supporting the people of Ukraine in the face of Putin’s brutal and unprovoked war.

“In our meeting, our Members expressed America’s deep gratitude to the Polish government and Polish people for opening their hearts and homes to Ukrainian refugees, and we reaffirmed our nation’s pledge to continue supporting Poland’s humanitarian efforts.  Our Members discussed our countries’ continued commitment to Ukraine, particularly as the Congress prepares to transform President Biden’s new request for additional security, economic and humanitarian assistance into legislation.  Our meeting also focused on reaffirming our nations’ joint commitment to further strengthening the U.S.-Polish partnership and the NATO alliance, both of which are vital to ensuring the triumph of our common democratic values and countering Putin’s dangerous aggression.

“Further informed and deeply moved by our experiences throughout our engagements in Poland, our delegation will return to Washington ready to continue our work until victory is won, and Ukraine has defended Democracy for their nation and the world.”
