Poland, Germany Patch Things Up: NYT

Poland and Germany have realized that they are politically and economically stronger when they stop arguing and work together, according to an article in The New York Times.

"It's springtime in Europe and something like love is in the air again for an unlikely pair," a recent article in the paper said. "Germany and Poland have finally patched things up again."

"Germany benefits by having a partner among the new European Union members from the former Soviet bloc, which can help it steer policy within an ever larger European club," the article added.

"Last month, Germany's foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier traveled to Poland for a series of meetings with Polish officials," the article noted. "But before kicking off the official part of his schedule, Steinmeier and his wife went to the country home of his Polish counterpart Radosław Sikorski, joining him and his wife for a friendly Sunday dinner."

Constanze Stelzenmuller, the director of the German Marshall Fund's Berlin office, was cited by the paper as saying, "After all the animosity and the venom and the bitterness that had characterized the relationship for such a long time, that... was a pretty big deal."
