Israel, Jerusalem /corr. Trend R.Abdullayev, D.Khatinoglu / Initiated by the United States, the Middle-Eastern conference in Annapolis (USA) on 27 November is directed against Iran, said the Israeli specialist on Arabian-Israeli conflict, Prof. of Bar-Ilan University, Gilel Frish.
George Bush's administration announced a big international conference on the Middle East which will take place on 27 November in Annapolis. This statement was made by official envoy of the US Department of State, Sean McCormack.
The conference will be attended by the Prime Minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, President of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas, UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, as well as delegations from several foreign countries. McCormack said that on 26 November, Bush will hold separate bilateral meetings with Olmert and Abbas, in the White House.
On 26 November Frish reported to Trend that the key initiator of the conference, US President George Bush, will give his final and important task to establish a large anti-Iranian coalition of moderate Arab regimes and Israel, which will stand against the strengthening geo-political hegemony of the mulla regime in Iran.
According to the Iranian expert for Russia and the Caucasus, Omid Arab, the conference in Annapolis was established by the USA and its key goal is to settle Arabian-Israeli conflict and accuse Iran of supporting Hezbollah and Hamas.
"The conference is aimed at presenting to the world that supporting extremist groups, Iran prevents the peace achieved between Israel and Palestine," Arab said in his interview with Trend on 26 November.
According to the Israelis, Bush wants to be remembered as a strong President who gained victory over the strategic threats from the Islamic Republic of Iran. "In this regard, the US President is supported by European countries as well. He tries to establish inactive, but latent coalition against Iran," Frish said.
Iran boycotted the conference in Annapolis. Today the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, stated that this conference will not make any contribution to Palestine and mostly it is directed against Palestine. He called on all Arab countries attending the conference to abandon it.
