B. Komorowski and B. Netanyahu discuss Mideast security

  |   Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Security in the Mideast dominated Monday talks in Jerusalem between Israel-visiting Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Komorowski said Poland hoped for the success of ongoing peace talks in the region.

 

Bronislaw Komorowski said Poland understood Israel's determination in protecting and defending its statehood. "Both our peoples (...) have lived in areas which were not always easy" the president remarked, reminding that Poland has always been located between two powerful neighbours Germany and Russia.

 

"This is why our country understands Israel's determination in building defences and security for its statehood. One must be determined in such matters if one wants to avoid returning to the difficult historical lesson of losing independence", B. Komorowski said.

 

Polish president added that Poland hoped for security for Israel and the entire Mideast region in effect of ongoing peace talks.

 

Netanyahu said that Israel's priority was the safe and peaceful resolution of the Palestinian issue. Recalling that Israel and Poland had a "long and rich common history", the Israeli PM noted that Poland and Israel today were "strong and free countries" and "proud, self-confident democracies".

 

"We know we have a true friend in Poland", Netanyahu said.

 

Recalling that the brunt of the Holocaust took place on Polish soil, Netanyahu stated that the extermination by Nazi Germany of millions of Jews in Poland was a tragedy without precedent in human history.

 

"We shall never forget the Holocaust victims. We shall never forget this crime against humanity, this crime of genocide. And we shall never forget our pledge not to let such a crime occur ever again".

 

Referring to Israel's relations with Iran, Netanyahu warned that preventing the Iranian regime from developing nuclear arms lay in the interest of Israel, the Arab world, Europe, China and Russia.

 

"Do we want this regime to be able to construct nuclear weaponry? We know that this regime shouldn't be given the possibility to decide in this sphere. There can be no leniency here. We will never agree to Iran laying its hands on nuclear arms", the Israeli government head declared.

 

Netanyahu also condoled president Komorowski on the recent death of Poland's first post-communist Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki, who he called "one of the founders of modern Poland". (PAP)
