Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised yesterday’s talks as a “pivotal turning point” in Arab attitudes towards Iran as world leaders and foreign ministers arrived at the second day of a US-led Middle East conference in Warsaw on Thursday.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was among the first to arrive, followed by Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz, Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir and Netanyahu.
Netanyahu, who was the only head of state to attend the summit, spoke to press in the foyer.
“An Israeli Prime Minister and several foreign ministers from leading Arab countries met in complete unity and complete clarity in understanding that the major threat to peace and security in the Middle East is Iran, the Iranian regime,” Netanyahu said of yesterday’s talks.
“There was a solidarity, a unity, that I don’t remember in my life time and I think that this is an enormous change.”
When a reporter asked Netanyahu if he were going to meet Saudi representatives, he replied: ‘Oh yeah.’
A two-day summit on “peace and security” in the Middle East started in the Polish capital on Wednesday, with representatives from around 60 countries participating in the event.
The agenda of the US-sponsored summit reportedly includes Iran, Israeli-Palestinian peace as well as the conflicts in Syria and Yemen.
