‘NO BIGGER TRAGEDY THAN CONFLICTS BECOMING A NATURAL AFFAIR’
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.”
