The state of US relations with Poland. ‘Our independence is at stake’
As the former ministers emphasize, in their opinion, the three decades of an independent Poland and a free Poland are “inextricably linked with American support” and accession to NATO.
The security, democracy, and freedom of Polish citizens depend on continued friendship, alliance, and partnership with the United States, regardless of who currently rules both countries. The basis of these relations is the military and economic presence of the United States in Poland, for which successive governments have sought and are obliged to protect. ”

We call on the current government to cease hostilities against American investors and to respect the core values common to Western countries friendly to Poland – democracy, the rule of law and freedom of expression. Our future is at stake, our independence is at stake.
