During a state dinner at the White House, U.S. President George Bush and Poland President Lech Walesa each rose to give brief remarks and to toast the ties between the U.S. and Poland. Earlier in the day, President Bush announced the U.S. would forgive 70% of Poland’s debt to the U.S. in an effort to aid the rebuilding of Poland’s economy. President Bush lauded Lech Walesa’s work in the reorganization of Poland’s economy, which has gone farther than any other former Soviet bloc state in moving toward a capitalist system. President Walesa toasted George Bush in turn, and said Bush was the “most popular politician in Poland.” close
