Chairman of the NATO Military Committee expresses his deepest sympathies for the loss of the Polish dignitaries and the Chief of the General Staff of the Polish Armed Forces

I wish to express, on behalf of the NATO Military Committee, my deepest condolence to the members of the Polish Institutions and Government, its Armed Forces, all of the country's citizens and the victims' families, for the tragic loss of President and Mrs. Kaczynski and the entire Polish delegation who perished in this terrible accident. 

My personal thoughts go to my great friend and Chief of the General Staff of the Polish Armed Forces, General Franciszek Gagor, who has been an extraordinary and unforgettable member of the Military Committee. ¬†And particularly offer my deepest sympathy to his wife Lucyna, to whom my family is very close. This was a tragic loss for Poland and its people. My prayers are with them today.
