Iran summons Polish top envoy over United States summit

A foreign ministry official said Tehran would take'urgent compensation measures if Poland fails to do

The Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned Sunday Poland's charge d'affaires to lodge Tehran's protest over an upcoming "anti-Iran" worldwide summit on the Middle East.

Iranian authorities summoned Poland's top envoy to Tehran on Sunday to express their outrage at the news that Warsaw would host a conference on Middle East policy that they believe is part of a USA push to promote its anti-Iran agenda. Iran has said it is planning some sort of commensurate action against Poland.

Relations between Tehran and Washington are highly fraught following US President Donald Trump's decision in May to withdraw from a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers and to reimpose sanctions, including on Iran's vital oil sector.

On Friday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the United States would hold an global summit in Poland on 13-14 February to discuss cooperation on achieving stability and security in the Middle East.

The upcoming summit was announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is now on a tour of the Middle East. But the gathering will take place in a lesser renowned location than usual - Warsaw.

Pompeo brought the Trump administration's anti-Iran message to Gulf Arab states on Friday as he continued his nine-nation tour of the Middle East.

On Thursday, Pompeo said the U.S.is pursuing plans to establish a new security alliance of Arab countries aimed at countering Iran's influence in the Middle East. "It won't be confined to the US, Europe and the Middle East".

Zarif has also reminded Poland of the favor that Iran has done the Polish during the second world war, noting, "Polish government can't wash the shame: while Iran saved Poles in WWII, it now hosts desperate anti-Iran circus".

In a speech entitled "A Force for Good: America's Reinvigorated Role in the Middle East", Pompeo accused the former president of "misguided" thinking that diminished America's role in the region while harming its longtime friends and emboldening Iran.

Czaputowicz said Poland supported the EU's efforts to preserve its nuclear agreement with Iran, but warned the deal alone would not keep Iran from "destabilizing" the region. It has vowed to increase the pressure until Iran halts what United States officials describe as its "malign activities" throughout the Mideast and elsewhere, including support for rebels in Yemen, anti-Israel groups, and Syrian President Bashar Assad.
