Polish FM criticizes German refusal to discuss compensation

Polish FM criticizes German refusal to discuss compensation

Warsaw, Jan 4 (Prensa Latina) The Polish Foreign Ministry described as disrespectful Germany's refusal to negotiate with Warsaw the payment compensation for damages caused during World War II.

This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister Arkadiusz Mularczyk, who was quoted by the Polish Press Agency.

According to Mularczyk, who headed a group of experts preparing a report on the country’s losses due to Nazi action, the response of the German authorities shows a lack of respect for this country and its citizens.

The vice-chancellor stressed that Poland intends to continue actions aimed at obtaining compensation and the dialogue will be pursued through international organizations.

Recently, the Polish Foreign Ministry stated that the German authorities had informed Warsaw that they considered the issue of compensation closed and would not engage in a dialogue on the matter.

On September 1, the Polish authorities presented a three-volume report prepared by Polish experts on the losses suffered by Poland as a result of the Nazi German attack and the German occupation in 1939-1945.

The total amount announced amounts to six trillion 220 billion 609 million zlotys (about one trillion 300 billion euros).

On October 3, Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau signed a note demanding that Germany to pay the compensation.

But the German government has repeatedly indicated that it sees no reason for any payment, since in 1953 Poland officially rejected reparations.

Warsaw claims that the 1953 agreement referred only to the defunct German Democratic Republic and the People’s Republic of Poland, which, according to local analysts, was not a sovereign state.
