ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, visited former Nazi concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz on Friday (February 15) alongside Poland's President Andrzej Duda.

The visit comes a day after the end of the U.S.-backed Middle East conference in Warsaw where Pence accused European powers of undermining Washington's crackdown on Iran.

Pence spoke at the summit which was attended by 60 countries, notably including both Gulf Arab states and Israel, in what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called a "historical turning point" for an alliance against Tehran.

Iran, Russia and the Palestinians were absent.

The summit venue in Poland could itself be seen as a rebuke to Washington's traditional Western European allies, who are at odds with a nationalist government in Warsaw over moves the EU says curb judicial independence and free speech.
