President Klaus Iohannis conveyed on Monday to his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda a message of condolences after the death of the mayor of Gdansk, following an attack on Sunday, underscoring that the politics should be fought with arguments, not with violence.
"I was outraged to learn about the bloody attack, which Mayor of Gdansk city Pawel Adamowicz fell victim to. It's gruesome and shocking that violence is occurring increasingly in the public life. The politics should be fought with arguments, not with violence. On behalf of the Romanian people and mine, personally, I convey condolences to the grieving family and I express my entire compassion and solidarity with the suffering that the Polish people are experiencing at this moment," reads Klaus Iohannis's message.
Mayor of Polish city Gdansk Pawel Adamowicz passed away on Monday in hospital after he was attacked with a knife during a philanthropic event on Sunday.
