‘NO BIG­GER TRAGEDY THAN CON­FLICTS BE­COM­ING A NAT­U­RAL AF­FAIR’

Khaleej Times - - NATION -

Poland is a coun­try which has seen the hor­rors of World War. With many large scale con­flicts hap­pen­ing around the world,

Khaleej Times asked Robert Rostek, Poland’s Am­bas­sador to the UAE, what the coun­try — where World War II was trig­gered in 1939 af­ter they were in­vaded by Ger­many — can of­fer to the “war­ring world”.

“Our his­tory is very painful. World War II was a prob­lem­atic time for Poland; then, there was the Sol­i­dar­ity Rev­o­lu­tion­ary move­ment in 1980. We achieved peace, but of course, there were sev­eral ca­su­al­ties in the trans­for­ma­tion process.

“In Syria, Ye­men and Iraq, we are far from reach­ing so­lu­tions. Po­lit­i­cal so­lu­tion is al­ways the best. Sadly, we are mov­ing to mil­i­tary in­ter­ven­tion than so­lu­tions. In my opin­ion, there is no big­ger tragedy than ca­su­al­ties and ex­plo­sions be­com­ing nat­u­ral af­fairs. If we don’t teach the younger gen­er­a­tion about the fragility of peace, the fu­ture will not be bril­liant for them.

“We need to keep the new gen­er­a­tion in­formed about the dan­gers of con­flicts.”
