Poland broke off relations with Israel after the Six-Day War of 1967, following the lead of other countries of the Soviet-controlled Eastern Bloc. It was the first Eastern bloc country to recognize Israel again in 1986. Full diplomatic relations were reestablished in 1990.[2] The Israel-Poland Chamber of Commerce was established in 1988.[3]

After talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk in Warsaw in January 2010, the two leaders pledged to deepen and develop Polish-Israeli relations.[4] In 2010, the Israel Council on Foreign Relations and the Polish Institute of International Affairs marked 20 years of bilateral relations between the countries with a Foreign Policy Conference held in Jerusalem.[5]
