US Middle East conference expected to zero in on Iran

Washington (CNN)The US and Poland host a Middle East conference Thursday that’s meant to address a broad range of security challenges, but looks set to be dominated by Iran, which has become a source of tension between the US and allies and is reportedly causing friction within the administration as well.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu set the tone Wednesday, declaring the gathering in Warsaw important because it gives Arab countries and Israel a chance to meet openly “to advance the common interest of war with Iran.”
The Israeli prime minister’s office later softened the statement to read “combatting Iran,” but there’s little doubt that Tehran remains a central focus of the ministerial meeting, even with a list of agenda items that include Syria and Yemen.
