Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will not go to the V4 meeting in Jerusalem after alleged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the end of his visit to Warsaw that "the Poles were working with the Nazis on the Holocaust." Instead, the foreign minister goes to Israel, writes Reuters.
The Polish Foreign Ministry had previously asked the Israeli ambassador to obtain more information on the matter. In his statement to the Polish Prime Minister, the Israeli ambassador to Warsaw Netanyahu denied this. At the request of Netanyahu, the paper also corrected, he said, the "diplomatic crisis" between the two countries was apparently closed. , The venue of the event seems surprising at first glance as the Israeli leadership, which is increasingly distancing itself from the core EU states, maintains good relations with several V4 leaders in the Member States. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended the V4 Summit in Budapest last year, promising to return the invitation.
