The Iranian foreign ministry on Sunday summoned Polish Chargé d’Affaires to Tehran Wojciech Unolt to protest Warsaw’s decision to host a US-backed anti-Iran conference next month, Fars News reported.
“This is a hostile move by the US against the Islamic Republic of Iran, and Poland is expected not to accompany the US in holding the conference,” the foreign ministry stated.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a televised interview on Saturday that the Warsaw meeting would “focus on Middle East stability and peace and freedom and security here in this region, and that includes an important element of making sure that Iran is not a destabilizing influence.”
The meeting, scheduled to start on February 13, will “bring together dozens of countries from all around the world, from Asia, from Africa, from Western Hemisphere countries, Europe too, the Middle East of course,” Pompeo said.
Reminder to host/participants of anti-Iran conference: those who attended last US anti-Iran show are either dead, disgraced, or marginalized. And Iran is stronger than ever.
Polish Govt can’t wash the shame: while Iran saved Poles in WWII, it now hosts desperate anti-Iran circus. pic.twitter.com/iOOvhgtUsL

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Friday lashed out at the anti-Iran conference, describing it as a “desperate circus” that will disgrace the participants. He tweeted: “Reminder to host/participants of anti-Iran conference: those who attended last US anti-Iran show are either dead, disgraced, or marginalized. And Iran is stronger than ever.”
Now, that’s the kind of diatribe one expects from a terrorist state.
