Iran protests to Poland over plans for ‘anti-Tehran summit’

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the ministry of foreign affairs in Cairo

The Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned Sunday Poland's charge d'affaires to lodge Tehran's protest over an upcoming "anti-Iran" worldwide summit on the Middle East.

The statement quoted an unnamed Iranian official as saying that if the summit goes ahead, Iran will resort to unspecified "counter-action" toward Poland.

"We'll bring together dozens of countries from all around the world", Pompeo told the Fox News network.

On Friday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the United States would hold an worldwide summit in Poland on 13-14 February to discuss cooperation on achieving stability and security in the Middle East.

An Iranian foreign ministry official told Poland's Chargé d'Affaires in Tehran, Wojciech Unoltin, that Iran saw the meeting as a "hostile act against Iran" and warned that Tehran could reciprocate, the official IRNA newsagency reported. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Poland's Foreign Ministry in Warsaw could not immediately be reached for comment on Sunday morning.

Zarif has also reminded Poland of the favor that Iran has done the Polish during the second world war, noting, "Polish government can't wash the shame: while Iran saved Poles in WWII, it now hosts desperate anti-Iran circus".

Since withdrawing from the nuclear deal previous year, the administration has steadily ratcheted up pressure on Tehran and routinely accuses the nation of being the most destabilizing influence in the region.

He made the announcement in an interview during a regional tour aimed at reassuring U.S. allies after President Donald Trump's shock decision to withdraw all American troops from Syria, which sparked concerns that Iran's influence could grow.

Iran hosted tens of thousands of Polish war refugees who were brought to the country after surviving work camps in the Soviet Union and before they migrated to then-emerging Israel, New Zealand and some African countries.

Meanwhile, a cultural official said a planned Polish Film Week in Iran would be cancelled if the summit plans are not dropped.

Hossein Entezami, the director of the Cinema Organization, said that the activity has been suspended.

"In order to protect the honour of Iran and Iranians, the holding of the Polish Film Week will depend on Warsaw's appropriate behaviour".
