On Sunday, April 2, Deputy Prime Minister Prof. Piotr Gliński met with the Director-General of UNESCO Audrey Azoulay. The main topic of the talks was the assistance provided to Ukraine and the possibility of implementing joint ventures with UNESCO using the expert support of the Polish Center for Aid for Culture in Ukraine. Audrey Azoulay thanked Poland for our commitment to helping Ukraine and accepting millions of war refugees.
Deputy Prime Minister Gliński emphasized the position expressed many times before that Russia, the aggressor state, should have no place in international organizations operating in accordance with universal values, including UNESCO.
Another topic of the conversation was Poland’s request to UNESCO to support our efforts to obtain compensation from Germany for cultural losses suffered as a result of World War II.
Deputy Prime Minister Gliński renewed his invitation to the Director General of UNESCO to pay an official visit to Poland, during which she could visit selected sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and learn about the richness of Polish cultural heritage.
