Award for Cyprus-based veteran Polish journalist Andrew Borowiec.

Cyprus-based, Polish journalist and author Andrew Borowiec was awarded the 'Bene merito' distinction by the Republic of Poland.

He is standing next to the Undersecretary of State at the Foreign Ministry of Poland, Dr Henryka Moscicka-Dendys, who awarded the distinction at a ceremony at the Polish embassy in Nicosia on Monday.

"Andrew Borowiec's life is the life of a 20th century hero: he was a soldier of the Polish Underground (Home) Army, participant of the Warsaw Uprising, soldier of the Polish 2nd Corps of General Wladyslaw Anders Army and, later on, a long-term foreign correspondent, covering conflicts all over the world. We would like to thank him for everything he has done for Poland," said Moscicka-Dendys.

The 'Bene merito' (of Good Merit) distinction is awarded to the citizens of the Republic of Poland and foreign nationals in recognition of their work in promoting Poland abroad. It is awarded by the Minister of Foreign Affairs at the Minister's own initiative or upon the request of other ministers or heads of foreign missions.

Borowiec's latest book -- Warsaw Boy, a Memoir of a Wartime Childhood -- an autobiographical account of pre-war and wartime Poland was published last year by Penguin.
