Polish deputy FM in Tehran to explain hosting anti-Iran summit organized by US

AVA- Lang touched down on Monday morning and was due to meet his Iranian counterpart, Abbas Araqchi, later in the day to discuss the event which is due to be held on February 13-14.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said this month that the conference would focus on stability and security in the Middle East, including the “important element of making sure that Iran is not a destabilizing influence.”
Lang's trip comes a week after Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoned Polish chargé d'affaires in Tehran, Wojciech Unolt, to provide answers as to why Warsaw had agreed to host the event.
"This is a hostile measure by the United States against the Islamic Republic of Iran, and Poland is expected to avoid assisting the US in holding the conference,” an Iranian Foreign Ministry official told Unolt back then.
The Polish official justified the decision by arguing that the meeting was not against Iran and that Warsaw’s stance towards Iran was different from that of the US.
Iran, however, dismissed the explanation as insufficient, saying that Poland's government would either have to immediately compensate for the move or have Iran "inevitably take reciprocal measures."
