On Saturday, the Minister of Defense of Poland Mariusz Błaszczak met on the border with Israel with soldiers of the Polish Military Contingent serving under the UN Temporary Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
The Minister of Defense expressed gratitude to Polish soldiers for their dedicated service in ensuring a truce, protecting civilians, supporting the Lebanese authorities and helping the Lebanese army. “You do these tasks very well,” said Blaszczak. Blaszczak began his visit to Lebanon on Friday. He noted that the purpose of the visit is to confirm that the Polish authorities want to provide the best possible conditions for Polish soldiers serving outside the country. After a ten-year break, Poland returned to UN peacekeeping operations in Lebanon.
