Ambassador Georgette Mosbacher and Mayor of Warsaw Rafał Trzaskowski

On Wednesday, May 15, Ambassador Mosbacher and Mayor of Warsaw Rafał Trzaskowski officially unveiled a new plaque in honor of Woodrow Wilson, America’s 28th president, on Wilson Square in Warsaw’s northern district of Żoliborz.  The U.S. Embassy presented the plaque to the city of Warsaw on January 8, 2018 to honor the centennial of the renowned Fourteen Points foreign policy address that President Wilson delivered to a joint U.S. Congress exactly 100 years earlier.  President Wilson’s Fourteen Points explicitly called – among other things – for Poland to regain its independence after World War I.  At the unveiling event, Ambassador Mosbacher highlighted America’s long admiration for Poland’s commitment to freedom, from President Wilson to President Trump.  Ambassador Mosbacher attributed today’s strengthening and deepening of U.S.-Polish relations – in economics, security, and people-to-people connections – to the ties forged by “strong American and Polish leaders and the shared democratic values that have sustained our relationship for over a century.”
