In an interview for private radio station RMF FM, Buzek said that talks on the issue of war reparations should be conducted but that the good ties that have been built between Germany and Poland must not be squandered.

Buzek stressed that discussions on war reparations for Poland will be a very long process. “Let us examine the legal aspects of the problem,” he said and referred to the Polish and German Presidents' earlier this week saying: “Let us be very restrained in making statements on the subject“. (mk/vb)
