Netanyahu: Israel has relations with whole Middle East except Syria

US Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jersualem

He clearly uses the word WAR (מלחמה), but his statement could be interpreted as "in order to advance the shared interest in war vs. Iran" OR "in order to advance the shared interest in fighting/combating Iran".

"Many are following this [Omani] lead, and may I say, including at this conference", a video released by Netanyahu's office showed him telling Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, a senior Omani official whose Gulf state hosted the Israeli leader in October.

"The United States seeks a new era of cooperation between all of our countries on how to confront these issues", Pompeo told foreign ministers and other officials from more than 60 countries in Warsaw.

The remark came amid heightened tensions between Israel and Iran, with the former consistently expressing concern over Tehran's alleged "entrenchment" in the region, namely in Syria.

The Poland conference aims to address Iran's influence in the Middle East, the Syrian conflict, Yemen's civil war and Israeli-Palestinian peace, the organisers say.

Netanyahu has said in recent weeks that Israel has carried out hundreds of attacks in Syria over the past several years and would ramp up its fight following the planned withdrawal of USA troops from the country.

Israel's shadow diplomacy with other influential regional actors has also markedly improved, of late.

Russian Federation and China aren't participating, and the Palestinians, who have called for the meeting to be boycotted, will also be absent.

The Israeli prime minister, who has become increasingly open about the IDF's activities in the region, has yet to confirm or deny whether it was a misleading translation, a Freudian slip, a Kinsley gaffe, or something else.

Around 60 delegations from around the world were expected to be received by Polish President Andrzej Duda at the Royal Castle in Warsaw for the two-day event, but key participants have made a decision to skip the conference. Nevertheless, the fact that a minor translation error can change so much about how we view the USA and Israeli stance toward Iran shows how perilous the devolving relations have become.
