In a re-issued statement to the media, Netanyahu's office said the goal of the meetings in Poland was "to advance the common interest of combatting Iran".
Prior to leaving Israel for the US- sponsored Warsaw Conference - which is set to take place in the Polish capital this week - Netanyahu told reporters that the conference unites Israel with all world countries against Iran, the New York Times reported today.
Israel is trying to counter the influence carved out in Syria by Iran, which has supported Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the war that erupted in 2011.
On Wednesday, Netanyahu boasted of the strong ties Israel is building with Arab countries in the region.
Noting that "a war with Iran is fundamentally at odds with the security interests of the United States, Israel, the people of Iran, and the entire Middle East", the group declared: "Whether the prime minister's words were intentionally muddled or not, his provocative message needs no interpretation".
Iran has also ramped up its rhetoric against Israel, promising to wipe it off the political map.
Russian Federation and China aren't participating, and the Palestinians, who have called for the meeting to be boycotted, will also be absent. Israel has been active in recent months attacking Iranian targets in neighbouring Syria.
Around 60 delegations from around the world were expected to be received by Polish President Andrzej Duda at the Royal Castle in Warsaw for the two-day event, but key participants have made a decision to skip the conference. Nevertheless, the fact that a minor translation error can change so much about how we view the USA and Israeli stance toward Iran shows how perilous the devolving relations have become.
The absence of foreign ministers from major European powers, Germany and France, highlights festering tensions with the European Union over US President Donald Trump's decision previous year to withdraw from a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and reimpose sanctions. "But Netanyahu and Gulf countries are eager to focus on Iran".
Netanyahu says he doesn't think the Trump administration's "Deal of the Century" peace plan will be discussed.
