The Polish Foreign Ministry has officially sent a note to Germany demanding reparations for World War II damage.
Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau said Monday, Oct. 3, that he had signed a note to Germany demanding reparations from World War II, rmf24.pl reports.
“The diplomatic note that I have just signed will be conveyed to the Foreign Ministry of the Federal Republic of Germany. It expresses the Polish Foreign Ministry’s belief that both sides should undertake immediate steps towards a sustainable settlement of the reparations issue,” the minister said.
Rau noted that Poland insists on settling payments of material and non-material compensation by Germany for the damage (due to) the occupation and compensation to victims and their families.
Recall, on September 14, the Polish Sejm adopted a resolution calling on Germany to take responsibility for the damage caused to Poland during World War II, and to pay reparations to the Polish state.
Poland also plans to demand reparations from Russia.
