The US ambassador to Poland, Georgette Mosbacher, denounces Israeli acting foreign minister Israel Katz’s remark earlier this week that Poles “suckle anti-Semitism with their mothers’ milk,” siding with Warsaw in the diplomatic spat that followed.
“Among close allies such as Poland and Israel, there is no place for such offensive comments as yesterday’s statement by Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz,” Mosbacher says in a tweet.
Katz’s comments led to Poland canceling a summit due to take place in Jerusalem this week and dressing down Israel’s ambassador Anna Azari.
Między bliskimi sojusznikami, takimi jak Polska i Izrael, nie ma miejsca na takie obraźliwe komentarze jak wczorajsza wypowiedź izraelskiego ministra spraw zagranicznych Israela Katza
