Poland summons Israeli envoy over WWII claims row

Warsaw, law was exploited for political purposes

(ANSA-AFP) - WARSAW, 27 GIU - Poland said Sunday it had summoned Israel's envoy after the Jewish state slammed as "immoral" a new Polish law that experts say could block World War II restitution claims. Deputy Foreign Minister Pawel Jablonski said Warsaw would like to set the record straight about the legislation passed in parliament on Thursday.

Tal Ben-Ari Yaalon, the charge d'affaires, "has been summoned ... and we will explain to her in a decisive and factual way what it's about", Jablonski told state television TVP about the meeting due on Monday. "We believe that unfortunately what we're dealing with here is a situation that certain Israeli politicians are exploiting for internal political purposes," he added. (ANSA-AFP).
