    President Demetris Christofias has sent a letter of condolences to the Polish Premier and the Acting President of Poland, expressing deep sorrow over the death of the late President of Poland, his wife and the people killed in todays air crash. It was with utter shock that I received the terrible news of the tragic plane crash of April 10 which took the lives of President Lech Kaczynski, and his wife Maria, the President says in his letters to Prime Minister Donald Tusk and Acting President Bronislaw Komorowski.

    With profound sorrow I was also informed that the Central Bank Governor Slawomir Skrzypek, Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Franciszek Gagor, Deputy Foreign Minister Andrzej Kremer as well as other government and military officials were included among the people who lost their lives in the horrible crash, President Christofias notes.

    On behalf of the people of Cyprus, the Government of the Republic of Cyprus and on my own behalf, I wish to extend my deepest condolences to the Polish people for their immense national loss, as well as my feelings of deep personal grief to the family of President Kaczynski and particularly to his daughter Marta, the President writes. Allow me also to convey our grief to the relatives of the deceased who were on board the fatal flight. Our thoughts are with them and with the people of Poland during these tragic moments.

    Concluding his letters, President Christofias says that President Kaczynskis legacy - as a devoted leader and a leader of integrity who tirelessly defended the rights of his country - will undoubtedly live on in the hearts of the Polish people. His memory will be remembered with respect by all of us who had known him.
