Israeli PM invited to anti-Iran summit in Poland

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday that the summit, to be held in Warsaw on 13-14 February, would focus on stability and security in the Middle East, including on the "important element of making sure that Iran is not a destabilising influence".

Pompeo said Friday that the USA was organizing an global summit in Poland focusing on Iran's Middle Eastern influence.

The moves followed a tweet by Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif who denounced the upcoming summit as America's anti-Iran "circus".

Pompeo is now on a Mideast tour, bringing the Trump administration's anti-Iran message to the region.
