Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday evening spoke with his Polish counterpart, Mateusz Morawiecki, on the phone to discuss the contentious new Polish law to criminalize the term "Polish death camps."

The announcement of the law caused a backlash among Israeli politicians, who characterized it as an attempt to rewrite the history of the Holocaust. The two leaders agreed to open an immediate dialogue between the two countries to reach a common understanding on the subject of the legislation.
