Speaking in the Polish capital on Thursday, Frank-Walter Steinmeier said the new monument, mandated by a resolution by his country's parliament, would be erected in the very heart of the German capital.

“It will be a place that will show to modern generations the enormity of suffering and unimaginable destruction that Poland experienced during the war," he said during a meeting with young people at Warsaw's Royal Castle.

“It will be a place of historical interest, but at the same time a German-Polish as well as European site—a monument, but also a meeting place,” he added, as quoted by public broadcaster Polish Radio's IAR news agency.

Steinmeier visited Warsaw on Thursday to hold face-to-face talks with Polish President Andrzej Duda and to attend a debate on people-to-people relations between the two countries.

His visit coincided with the 30th anniversary of the Polish-German Treaty of Good Neighbourhood and Friendly Cooperation.

Signed on June 17, 1991, the landmark agreement set the two neighbouring nations on a path of reconciliation several decades after Nazi Germany inflicted mass destruction on Poland during World War II.
