Statement by the President on Travel to Poland

"I spoke with acting President Komorowski and told him that I regret that I will
not be able to make it to Poland due to the volcanic ash that is disrupting air
travel over Europe. Michelle and I continue to have the Polish people in our
thoughts and prayers, and will support them in any way I can as they recover
from this terrible tragedy. President Kaczynski was a patriot and close friend
and ally of the United States, as were those who died alongside him, and the
American people will never forget the lives they led."
