warsaw - Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki canceled a planned visit to Israel. That has been announced by a spokesperson for the Polish government.
The Polish government is displeased by a comment from the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said that Poland cooperated with Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.
According to a spokesperson for the Israeli government, Netanyahu was misquoted and he did not mention Poland as an accomplice to the persecution of the Jews during the Second World War.
Instead of the Polish Prime Minister, Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz will now visit Israel.
