Visiting Polish lawmakers meet with MKs in Jerusalem today, saying that the get-together was a positive indicator that the tense relationship between Poland and Israel was improving.
Polish MP Piotr Zgorzelski tells his Israeli counterparts that their meeting “bodes well for advancing relations between our countries.”
“I believe this is a new chapter between our parliaments,” Zgorzelski adds.
The MPs also visit Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem Holocaust museum, some of them for the first time, and claim that Poland is fighting anti-Semitism.
Relations between Warsaw and Jerusalem deteriorated after a Polish law banned placing blame for the Holocaust upon their countrymen’s shoulders.
In March 2023, Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen visited Poland to help improve ties, the first foreign ministerial visit since 2018, when the Holocaust law was passed.
