Berlin is obliged to immediately resolve the issue of paying reparations to Poland, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the republic said. The Polish Sejm previously decided that the amount should be $1.3 trillion.
Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau signed a diplomatic note stating that the Polish and German authorities should immediately agree on the payment of reparations to Warsaw for damage caused during World War II. This is reported by TVN24.
“The diplomatic note that I have just initialed will be submitted to the German Foreign Ministry. It expresses the conviction that the parties must take immediate steps … to resolve the issue of the consequences of aggression, — said Rau on Monday, October 3.
The Minister indicated that as part of the payment of reparations, the German side should, in particular, return the assets of Polish state-owned banks stolen by Germany in 1939-1945, settle debt issues, fully rehabilitate the murdered activists and compensate for the losses suffered by the Poles in the Commonwealth.
This process, among other things, should include cooperation in perpetuating the memory of the Polish victims of World War II.
Note that 14 September, the Sejm of Poland adopted a resolution containing calculations of the amount of reparations – in total, Warsaw is seeking payment of 1.3 trillion dollars from Berlin.
