In 2014, Turkey and Poland celebrated the 600th anniversary of diplomatic relations. The intensive interaction led at the end of the day to overlapping of cultures in both the countries. Such a long history of diplomatic ties happens only rarely in international relations. Despite for that, the knowledge and mutual understanding in both the countries is much less today than It was when we had a common border for centuries. Islam is one of the issues that makes Turkey distant from Poland and Europe, especially now, in the time of migration crisis – writes Małgorzata Bonikowska PhD, President of CIR, in a text entitled Poland and Turkey After 600 Years published in Balkanlarda Islam by Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency.
