Poland is unwavering in its support of “Palestinian rights”, the country’s top diplomat told Arab leaders during a meeting on Thursday.

Speaking with representatives of the Palestinian Authority, Morocco, Egypt, Yemen, Mauritania, Iran, Lebanon, Tunis, Libya, Qatar, Algeria, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates, Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said that his country’s support for “Palestinian rights” was “fixed”, and “unchangeable”, Safa reported on Friday.

Arab leaders have lobbied Poland to back the Palestinian Authority, and potentially to use its seat on the United Nations Security Council in future votes relevant to the Israel-Arab conflict.

Czaputowicz emphasized that Polish policy vis-à-vis Israel and the Palestinian Authority is based on the positions outlined by the European Union.

Poland, Czaputowicz added, is committed to enhancing regional stability in the Middle East, and views development in Arab countries as a key to that end.
