    Poland supports efforts to find a political solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on a two-state model that includes the realisation of the aspirations of both parties to the conflict. Reaching an agreement on this matter is possible only through peace talks.

    The key element of this agreement should be the determination of the legal status of Jerusalem, assuming the mutual recognition of historical relations and national rights of both parties to the city and taking into account the special significance of this place for the history of the three monotheistic religions.


    In accordance with the UN General Assembly Resolution 181 (1947), which called for the division of historic Palestine into two states: an Arab and a Jewish state, Jerusalem was to be established as a separate entity with an international status (corpus separatum).


    Due to international circumstances, however, this resolution was not implemented. Nevertheless, most UN member states and international organizations did not recognize Israeli sovereignty in East Jerusalem after its annexation by Israel in 1967 as a result of the Six-Day War.


    We therefore approach with caution all actions affecting the international status of Jerusalem before a final peace agreement is reached between the parties to the conflict.
