SOUNDBITE (Polish) Pawel Adamowicz, Gdansk Mayor: "A few years ago, a beautiful seaside park built by the city was given the name of Ronald Reagan. Now we unveil the monument to Ronald Reagan walking with Pope John Paul II. This monument in Gdansk is something natural. Ronald Reagan is an honorary citizen of Gdansk. He once visited Gdansk, while Pope John Paul II came here twice. These two characters symbolise the peaceful struggle for change, not only in Poland but in this part of Central and Eastern Europe." 8. Officials standing beside statue 9. SOUNDBITE (Polish) Tadeusz Goclowski, retired Archbishop of Gdansk: "I am convinced that the combination of two such great figures is unique. The times in which they lived and the decisions that they took were also remarkable. These were the decisions concerning Poland, Europe, the United States and the whole world. Ronald Reagan's political attitude and the attitude of the spirit of John Paul II brought excellent results. This monument in Gdansk is a symbol of what our city was and that it had a significant role." 10. Close-up of John Paul II statue 11. Spectators with umbrellas 12.

Close-up of statue STORYLINE: A statue honouring Pope John Paul II and former US President Ronald Reagan was unveiled in the Polish city of Gdansk on Saturday.

Officials and locals braved the rain at a ceremony in a city park, which was named after Reagan. "The times in which they lived and the decisions that they took were ... remarkable. These were the decisions concerning Poland, Europe, the United States and the whole world. Ronald Reagan's political attitude and the attitude of the spirit of John Paul II brought excellent results," said Tadeusz Goclowski, the retired Archbishop of Gdansk, birthplace of the Solidarity trade union movement. "This monument in Gdansk is a symbol of what our city was and that it had a significant role," Goclowski added.
