"How can we deal with the fact that Germany's 1939 attack (on Poland) and unresolved post-war issues still cast a shadow on Polish-German relations?" he said.
Warsaw was "preparing" its formal position on WWII reparations, Waszczykowski said, without specifying when it would be made public.
"The fact is that Poland was destroyed during the war, terrible crimes were committed here, and we have received no compensation for that," he said. ■
