Oman Minister Responsible for Foreign Affairs Yusuf bin Alawi and Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Warsaw, Feb. 13 2019

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday after talks with Oman’s Minister Responsible for Foreign Affairs Yusuf bin Alawi on the sidelines of the Middle East conference in Warsaw, that the two men had had an “excellent meeting.”

Netanyahu said that he and bin Alawi “discussed additional steps we can take together with the countries of the region in order to advance common interests. This will continue,” he said, adding that although it is cold in Warsaw right now, “Israel’s foreign relations are warming up, warming up for the better.”


The prime minister was particularly optimistic about the fact that many of those with whom he was meeting, among the 60 foreign ministers and envoys of countries from around the world, were “representatives of leading Arab countries, that are sitting down together with Israel in order to advance the common interest of combating Iran.”

Netanyahu is also set to meet with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the sidelines of the gathering, as well as with other leaders. The prime minister is expected to address the conference Thursday.
