    Szynkowski vel Sęk: Diplomatic note to Germany on reparations is being prepared

    Poland will send Germany a diplomatic note on war reparations by the end of the year, a Polish deputy foreign minister has said.

    Szymon Szynkowski vel Sęk told Polish Radio that the note was currently under preparation. He added that a new government report on war damages suffered by Poland during its wartime occupation by Germany “clearly shows that Germany’s indemnity obligations have not expired.”

    Szynkowski vel Sęk also criticised a recent statement by Olaf Scholz, the German chancellor, in which he said the reparation issue was closed. The Pole said the 1990 “2+4” treaty on a unified German foreign policy, on which Scholz based his claims, had not covered reparations.


    “It is very doubtful to conclude that if a document does not address an issue, then this issue is closed,” Szynkowski vel Sęk said.
