"This week I will leave for the peace and security conference in Warsaw. I will meet there with US Vice President Mike Pence, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and additional leaders. The first issue on the agenda is Iran – how to continue preventing it from entrenching in Syria, how to thwart its aggression in the region and, above all, how to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear weapons", Netanyahu said at a Cabinet meeting, quoted by his press service.
The two-day ministerial meeting on the Middle East hosted jointly by the United States and Poland is due to start in the Polish capital on February 13. The conference will address such issues as terrorism and extremism, missile proliferation, and security and stability in the Middle East.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on January 11 that the meeting would also address Iran in the context of making sure it did not constitute a "destabilizing influence" in the region. Iran was not among the countries invited to the meeting.
