At Warsaw conference, Pence hails Netanyahu 'breaking bread' with Arab leaders

At Warsaw conference, Pence hails Netanyahu 'breaking bread' with Arab leaders

"Many are following this (Omani) lead, and may I say, including at this conference", a video released by Netanyahu's office showed him telling Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, whose Gulf state hosted the Israeli leader in October.

Leading European countries Germany and France opted not to send their foreign ministers over concerns the meeting could highlight big-power tensions over Washington's decision previous year to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions against Tehran.

Washington initially touted the summit as a way to counter Iran's influence in the region, drawing condemnations from Tehran and leading several nations to send lower-ranking officials instead of their top representatives. "This is a new era for the future, and for prosperity for all the nations".

Israel has been increasingly open about carrying out air strikes in Syria with an election looming in April.

"Against Iran and against its attempt to entrench itself in the area", Netanyahu told reporters before flying to Poland for a Mideast conference.

The summit appears to be the first time an Israeli leader and senior Arab officials will attend an worldwide conference centered on the Middle East since the Madrid peace conference in 1991, which set the stage for the landmark Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinians.

As a player you feel you have responsibilities to uphold on the field and I stand by what I did. "Don't use it as an insult", he said.

"So.we shouldn't take this to mean Bibi is sitting with foreign ministers of Arab states and drawing up plans to attack Iran", Shushan concluded.

"Iran isn't behaving like a normal country".

Hosting the meeting is a chance for Poland's conservative government to bolster ties with Washington at a time when it is increasingly isolated within the European Union amid a dispute over its adherence to rule-of-law standards.

"With the summit largely spurned by our Western European allies, the administration was forced to spin the event from an Iran-centric gathering to one focused on broader Middle East peace and security issues", NIAC said. In a joint op-ed published Wednesday morning on CNN's website, Pompeo and Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz wrote that the summit will deal mainly with the civil wars in Syria and Yemen, as well as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and other security-related regional matters.

During the conference US President Donald Trump son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, who has been putting final touches on a "deal of the century" for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, will make a rare speaking appearance.
