Escalating India-Pakistan crisis fuels regional insecurity: Iran


"The escalation of tensions and continuation of the crisis between these two countries will prepare the ground for extremist and terrorist groups and the countries supporting them to spread insecurity and create more instability in the region," Bahram Qassemi said on Friday.

Iran invites the two neighboring countries to exercise self-restraint and avoid non-peaceful approaches, he added.

Tehran also calls on New Delhi and Islamabad to solve their differences through direct talks and political means, the Iranian spokesperson said.

Qassemi expressed hope that the two countries would adopt "rational and non-military strategies" to find peaceful and lasting solutions to the conflict.
