Israel warns Iran that its missiles can travel 'very far'

Israel warns Iran that its missiles can travel 'very far'

What is important about this meeting - and it is not in secret, because there are many of those - is that this is an open meeting with representatives of leading Arab countries, that are sitting down together with Israel in order to advance the common interest of combating Iran.

Prior to leaving for a major meeting in Poland, Netanyahu commented on the Israeli strike on Monday and stressed that Iran is the focus of the Warsaw Mideast summit.

As Reuters notes, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates all "share Israel's concerns about Iranian actions in the region and also sent envoys to [the] Warsaw [conference]".

Netanyahu considers Iran to be Israel's greatest threat, citing its calls for Israel's destruction, its nuclear program and support for militant groups across the region.

Iran has denounced the conference, which began Wednesday, as an American anti-Iran "circus" and Russian Federation said it would not attend. In October, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Sultantate of Oman, marking the first time in 22 years that an Israeli prime minister has visited Oman. "Now we say, this is a new era, for the future".

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

Netanyahu says he doesn't think the Trump administration's "Deal of the Century" peace plan will be discussed.

The Jerusalem Post reports that, although Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar have all sent representatives to Warsaw for the conference, Palestinian Authority officials are boycotting the US -sponsored confab due to the Trump administration's 2018 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and its relocation of its Israeli embassy to that capital.

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. 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.

Several million Yemenis face starvation and the country has suffered one of the worst cholera outbreaks in modern times as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates - backed by the USA - seek to bomb and blockade the country's Houthi rebels into surrender.
