The conference had earlier been announced on Fox News by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who said special attention would be paid to the influences of Iran, a state in conflict with Israel, in the Middle East region.


Several dozen countries have expressed readiness to take part in the conference, the Polish Foreign Ministry's press service has announced. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has not yet decided whether to attend, the dpa agency reported last week. The EU's chief foreign diplomat, Federica Mogherini, will be on an earlier-arranged trip to Africa during the event, and Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz recently told Polish daily Rzeczpospolita in an interview that Russia would not be represented.


Israeli media reported on Wednesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would be present at the event. According to the Times of Israel, representatives of Gulf states will also be coming to the Polish capital, including from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. (PAP)
