    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Polish President Andrzej Duda is convinced that Germany still owes reparations to his country for destruction that occured during World War Two.

    The discussion of reparations is not over yet, Duda said in an interview on Sunday to the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag, adding it was a question of "truth and responsibility."

    He said a parliamentary panel was considering the next steps after Arkadiusz Mularczyk, head of a repatriations committee, said they would reassess the damage done to Poland.
