We need to overcome Stalinist views on history – Polish FM

“We have issues to do with history: we don’t accept Stalinist historical views and we need to overcome them,” Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski said in an interview with RT.

The Minister said that he and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov have appointed a commission to work on the stumbling blocks.

“In recent days (the commission) has come up with a formula that could put to an end some of those sticking points,” Sikorski said.

Disputes over AMD plans, meat imports and Moscow’s relations with the EU have led to fraught ties between Russia and Poland, but the minister said he believes that while differences remain, relations have now turned the corner.
