Clinton ‘grossly misled’ on Polish issues: President Duda

President Andrzej Duda has said that recent comments by ex US-president Bill Clinton about “Putin-like dictatorship” in Poland, were because he was “grossly misled”.

Talking to reporters after the ceremony at Monte Cassino in Italy, President Duda was asked to comment on former US President Bill Clinton’s remarks in which be expressed the view that “Poland and Hungary – two countries that would not be free but for the United States and the long Cold War – have now decided this democracy is too much trouble”.

Clinton added: “They [Poland and Hungary] want Putin-like dictatorships”. President Duda said that as a former president, Bill Clinton should be well-versed in current developments, adding that “he has probably let himself be carried away by emotions surrounding his wife’s election campaign”.

“I would be happy to host Bill Clinton in Poland and explain to him certain things, as he has been grossly misled [on the situation in Poland],” the Polish President said. Prime Minister Beata Szydło has described Clinton’s remarks as unjustified and completely unfair.
