Netanyahu to attend Warsaw summit to discuss Iran

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced his planned trip to the Polish capital of Warsaw, where a U.S. sponsored ministerial summit will take place later this week “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.

Representatives from nearly 80 countries, including from Arab states, have been invited to attend. The two-day summit will begin in the Polish capital on Wednesday; while separately on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold his own summit in the resort city of Sochi with the leaders of Iran and Turkey, to discuss the situation in Syria.
