Press Statement

Michael R. Pompeo

Secretary of State

Washington, DC
May 2, 2019


On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I extend my congratulations and best wishes to the people of Poland on the occasion of your 228th Constitution Day.

Widely regarded as one of the first modern constitutions in Europe, the May Third Constitution represented an historic landmark in your country’s pursuit of freedom and democracy.

It was an honor for me to have visited Poland earlier this year and to see the tremendous progress the country has made since the collapse of communism and return of freedom 30 years ago. I look forward to marking this and several other important anniversaries in 2019 with our Polish Allies and friends as we continue to strengthen the strategic partnership between our two countries.
