Bid for an anti-Iran coalition stressed by Pompeo and Netanyahu

In closed-door meetings on Wednesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu urged participants to the Peace and Security Conference in Warsaw to form a coalition against Iran. According to the passages released from their speeches, Pompeo stressed that the Middle East would not achieve peace and stability without confronting Iran. “It’s just not possible,” he said. They are operating in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq; they support the Houthis in Yemen, as well as Hamas and Hizballah, all of whom pose real threats. “The Iranians must be pushed out of those places,” said Pompeo.
Netanyahu called the conference a historic turning point per se, in that it assembled in one room 60 foreign ministers and delegates, some from Arab nations, with an Israeli prime minister. They all, he said, “spoke with exceptional power, clarity and unity against the shared threat posed by the Iranian regime.”
