US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said his country is organising an international summit on Iran to be held in Poland next month.
The United States is organising an international summit in Poland next month, focusing on Iran's Middle Eastern influence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News.

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

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

They will "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 top US diplomat said.

The event will take place on 13 and 14 February.
