Netanyahu to meet Pence, Pompeo this week in Warsaw
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Sunday that he will meet with US Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo later this week at a US-sponsored ministerial summit in Warsaw, Poland, to “promote a future of peace and security in the Middle East.”
The prime minister said he will also meet with other leaders, though he did not give any names. Representatives from nearly 80 countries, including from Arab states, have been invited to attend.
“The first issue on the agenda is Iran – how to continue preventing it from entrenching in Syria, how to thwart its aggression in the region and, above all, how to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said.
In addition to meeting Pence later this week, Netanyahu is expected to meet with US President Donald Trump at the end of March, when he travels to Washington to attend the annual AIPAC policy conference.
