Duda handed out the honour on Wednesday in Washington, where he attended a memorial service for former US President George H.W. Bush.
Jacques Paul Klein, who served as head of three United Nations peacekeeping missions in the former Yugoslavia, was awarded The Grand Cross of Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland for overseeing UN joint operations with Poland’s GROM special forces unit.
President Duda also handed the honour to Mark Sutton, CEO of the International Paper Company, for strengthening business relations between the two countries and for the company’s investment in Poland.
