“Confronting Iran’ Key To Peace In Middle East” – US Secretary Mike Pompeo

Leaders meet at Warsaw conference, hailed by PM as a ‘historical turning point’ due to his participation alongside many senior Arab officials

“Confronting Iran” is an essential requirement for achieving peace in the Middle East, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday on the sidelines of an international conference dealing with the region.

“You can’t achieve peace and stability in the Middle East without confronting Iran, it’s just not possible,” he told reporters ahead of a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Pompeo ignored reporters’ questions about the administration’s planned release of a proposal for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
