New Delhi [India], Nov 11 (ANI): External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar on Friday sent greetings to the government and people of Poland on their Independence Day. Using his Twitter account, Jaishankar sent his greetings to Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau and the Polish people. He expressed confidence that the “historic friendship” between the nations will continue to grow.
Dr S Jaishankar tweeted: “Independence Day greetings to FM @RauZbigniew and to the government and people of Poland. Confident that our historic friendship will continue to grow.” Every year, Poland celebrates National Independence Day on November 11 to celebrate the anniversary of the nation’s regaining of sovereignty in 1918.
It is relevant to mention here that Poland helped India in “Operation Ganga”. Notably, “Operation Ganga” was an evacuation operation launched by the Indian government to evacuate Indian nationals from Ukraine after Russia launched its offensive on February 24.

Special flights from Poland have been made to bring back Indian nationals evacuated from Ukraine. Earlier in March, the Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways and Civil Aviation, General Vijay Kumar Singh, visited Poland to coordinate and oversee the evacuation process for Indian nationals from Ukraine.
Earlier in April, EAM S Jaishankar spoke with his Polish counterpart Zbigniew Rau. During the meeting, he thanked Rau for facilitating the evacuation of Indian students during “Operation Ganga”. During the meeting, the two leaders shared assessments and views on the Indo-Pacific and Ukraine. Jaishankar and Zbigniew Rau expressed their commitment to developing the partnership between the two nations.
EAM Jaishankar tweeted, “Engaging conversation with FM @RauZbigniew from Poland. thanked him for facilitating the evacuation of our students during #OperationGanga. Our commitment to growing our partnership was visible. Resuming direct flights will improve exchanges in all fields.
In another tweet, Jaishankar said, “Divided assessments and views on Indo-Pacific and Ukraine. Also witnessed signing of mutual legal assistance treaty.”
Notably, India and Poland share a “long-standing friendly relationship” marked by high-level political contacts, economic engagement and traditional cultural ties, according to the statement released by the Indian Embassy in Poland. Diplomatic relations between the two nations began in 1954 and the Indian Embassy in Warsaw was established in 1957. (ANI)
