Israel Minister to Poland Israel Barzilai has paid a visit to J. Vierblowski, Acting Foreign Minister of Poland, to thank him for the Polish Government’s decision to allow Polish Jews to leave for Israel if they renounce their Polish citizenship and to discuss concrete plans for facilitating the emigration of the Jews, it was learned here today.

Mr. Barzilai read a statement in behalf of his government, thanking Poland for this expression of good will toward Israel and understanding for the wishes of the Jews of Poland. This action will strengthen the bonds between the two nations, the Israel Minister said, adding that it is in line with Poland’s record of assistance to the Jewish state on international levels.
