30th Anniversary of German-Polish Border Treaty in the Two-Plus-Four Negotiations (July 17, 1990)

It was only in the third round of the of the so-called two-plus-four talks that one of the remaining but crucial obstacles on the path to German unification was finally overcome on July 17, 1990: the foreign secretaries of the two German states, the four victorious powers as well as Poland agree on a Polish western border.  Helmut Kohl had presented a Ten-Point plan for German unity on November 28, 1990 before the Bundestag. Bowing to the demands of the influential Federation of Expellees the plan did not mention the Polish border issue, a fact that didn’t sit well with Poland.

After all, the German unification touches on a problem that has remained unsolved since the end of World War II. In August of 1945 the Allied Forces had decided in the Potsdam Agreement to place the former German territories east of the Oder-Neisse-line under Polish civil administration until the boundaries were finalized in a peace treaty. However, once Germany was divided this peace treaty never came to fruition. The GDR recognizes the Oder-Neisse-Peace-Border in 1950 and in 1970 the FRG forgoes possible territorial claims, but a binding agreement under international law taking into account the still existing rights of the victorious powers for a united Germany still does not exist.

Once both German parliaments have passed bills acknowledging the Oder-Neisse border further steps are decided at the Paris summit in July of 1990. The two-plus-four treaty from September 12, 1990 finalizes the border definition of a reunited Germany under the terms that a unified Germany will recognize the Western Polish border in a treaty that is binding under international law ASAP. The German-Polish Border Treaty is signed six weeks after the German reunification, a year later it is supplemented by a Treaty of Good Neighbourship. The German and Polish parliaments ratify both treaties later in 1991. They come into force on January 16, 1992.
