Ambassador hails cancellation of Visegrad summit

February 20, 2019

TEHRAN – Iran’s Ambassador to Britain Hamid Baeidinejad said on Monday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suffered a “heavy blow” after the cancellation of a two-day summit of the Central European countries known as the Visegrad group (V4) in the occupied Palestinian territories.

“The aftershocks of the Warsaw summit: With Poland’s objection, the summit of heads of Central European countries, which was scheduled to be held in Israel, was canceled,” Baeidinejad said in a tweet.

The summit of Central European leaders in Quds was cancelled after Poland withdrew on Monday, accusing Israel's acting foreign minister, Yisrael Katz, of “racist” and “totally unacceptable” statements.
