India’s Jaishankar Discusses Escalating West Asia Situation With UK Counterpart

India’s external Affairs Minister S Jaishankar engaged in a telephonic discussion with his British counterpart, David Cameron, on Saturday, focusing on the “emerging” situation in West Asia amidst escalating tensions between Israel and Iran.

The conversation between Jaishankar and Cameron coincided with the day when the Iranian military seized a cargo ship with Israeli connections near the Strait of Hormuz. The ship, carrying 17 Indian crew members, was intercepted.

Jaishankar shared the update on social media platform ‘X,’ stating, “Spoke to UK Foreign Secretary Lord @David_Cameron today. Discussed the emerging situation in West Asia as also our bilateral ties.”

There are growing concerns that Tehran might retaliate against Israel following an attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria twelve days ago, for which Iran has held Israel responsible.

In the midst of escalating tensions between Iran and Israel, Israeli military spokesman Daniel Hagari warned, “Iran will bear the consequences for choosing to escalate the situation any further.”

On Friday, US President Joe Biden cautioned Iran against an attack on Israel.

“We are devoted to the defence of Israel. We will support Israel. We will defend – help defend Israel. And Iran will not succeed,” he told reporters.

India on Friday asked its citizens not to travel to Iran and Israel.
