Statement on the situation in West Asia

We are seriously concerned at the escalation of hostilities between Israel and Iran which threatens the peace and security in the region.

We call for immediate de-escalation, exercise of restraint, stepping back from violence and return to the path of diplomacy.

We are closely monitoring the evolving situation. Our Embassies in the region are in close touch with Indian community.

It is vital that security and stability are maintained in the region.
