Tehran urges India and Pakistan to engage in dialogue
Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi has called on India and Pakistan to show restraint amid reports of heightened tension between the two sides.
Ghasemi said that Tehran calls on the two countries to do more to reduce tension and resolve disputes and problems peacefully through dialogue.
He added that Iran, as one of the victims of terrorism in the world, believes that the only way to fight terrorism and extremism is all-out and unbiased cooperation between all countries of the world, Mehr news agency reported.
Ghasemi's comments came after India said it had conducted "preemptive" airstrikes against a militant training camp inside Pakistan, shortly after the Pakistani military accused New Delhi of violating its territory in the Kashmir region.
