Big For Israel: Netanyahu Praises 'Excellent Meeting' With Omani Foreign Minister

Netanyahu Confirms Latest Israeli Strike in Syria

On the sidelines, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Oman's foreign minister.

In a Hebrew-language video message recorded before he headed to the opening of a Middle East conference in Warsaw, the prime minister hailed the fact that an Israeli leader was about to sit down with senior officials from "leading Arab countries" in order to "advance the common interest of combating Iran".

Foreign ministers and other officials from more than 60 countries were gathering for the conference in Warsaw, which starts Wednesday evening and whose agenda includes Iran, conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Israeli-Palestinian peace.

The controversy comes amid speculation about the goal of the meeting in Poland of top officials from 65 different countries-which also featured President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani calling for regime change in Iran while speaking at a rally outside the summit on behalf of, as Robert Mackey of The Intercept put it, "a cult-like group of Iranian exiles who pay him to represent them".

Oman does not formally recognize Israel. The Israeli air force had carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria, targeting Iranian sites to halt Iran's attempts to gain a military foothold in the country. And how they always get made when we say this?

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 past year to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and re-impose sanctions against Tehran.

The prime minister's social media accounts published the statement, leading numerous people, including Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, to point out the statement's ostensible belligerency.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz greet the attendees including Saudi Arabia's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir. "But Netanyahu and Gulf countries are eager to focus on Iran". The meeting occurred a conference in Poland, The Hill reported. The Jerusalem Post reports that the Trump administration is unlikely to make a big splash at the conference with an announcement of its impending Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.

Palestinian officials, viewing the current USA administration as having a pro-Israel bias, declined to attend the conference.

"The European Union alone does not, in my opinion, carry sufficient political weight to try to really influence the situation in the Middle East", he told reporters.
