(Persia Digest) – An EU spokesperson has pointed to the compact agenda of Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, saying she will probably be unable to fit the anti-Iran summit in Poland in her work schedule.

This European source told IRNA reporter in London: “We are aware that a summit on the ME called “Peace and security in the Middle East” is being held. But Mogherini is currently traveling and it is highly unlikely that she can make the summit.”

The so-called “Peace and security in the Middle East” summit on 13-14 February in Warsaw is focused on Iran’s regional presence.
