The summit in Warsaw is expected to be an opportunity to discuss the issues of security of the Middle East, but the Israeli PM will focus on the threat of Iran. Ms Azari stressed that Iran is a country destabilising the Middle East. Tehran has been considered by the Israeli authorities as the main threat in the region for many years.

“We believe Iran is deceiving everyone. This is not just our opinion, but also this topic is discussed in the EU and everyone is concerned about the direction towards which Iran is going,” the ambassador stressed.

Mr Netanyahu will meet American politicians in Warsaw, including Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He will also talk with Polish President Andrzej Duda.

Ms Azari stressed that the conference in Warsaw will be a good opportunity for the Israeli PM to meet the representatives of some Arab countries, with which Israel does not maintain diplomatic relations.

“It is a great opportunity to meet around a dozen foreign ministers of Arab countries. There are not many such platforms in the world,” the ambassador said.

One of the topics of the summit will be the conflict between Israel and Palestine. The American diplomats who are working over US President Donald Trump’s peace plan, are expected to participate in the meeting about this issue. However, the representatives of Palestine will not attend the conference in the Polish capital.

The "Ministerial Meeting to Promote a Future of Peace and Security in the Middle East," held jointly by Poland and the US, will take place in Warsaw on February 13-14.
