Poland and Iran have a long-standing relationship.

In 1918, after the end of World War I, Poland regained its independence. In 1919, Iran recognized Polish independence, and both states established diplomatic relations. In 1927, both nations signed a Friendship Treaty, and in 1928, Poland opened a consulate in Tabriz.

In September 1939, Poland was invaded by Germany and the Soviet Union, which sparked the beginning of World War II. In 1942, approximately 120,000 Polish refugees arrived in Iran.

After World War II, Iran and Poland re-established diplomatic relations in August 1945. Their relations were elevated to embassies in 1962.

After the Islamic Revolution in 1979 in Iran, relations between the two sides continued uninterrupted ever since, and several high-level visits have taken place between leaders of both nations.

This relationship, although challenging at times, continued to date.
