Foreign Minister S Jaishankar on Monday held talks with his Qatar and Jordan counterparts, Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani and Ayman Safadi respectively, and discussed issues pertaining to the ongoing regional situation. Earlier on January 5, the External Affairs Minister spoke to his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif in the wake of the killing of Iran’s top military commander General Qassem Soleimani. 

 

The telephonic conversation of the leaders comes at a time when the middle eastern region is engulfed in crisis after Iran's senior military commander Qassem Soleimani was killed in a strike conducted by the United States. Furious after the killing of Soleimani, Iran has vowed to retaliate and take revenge.

A couple of days back, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has also dialled several of the world leaders and his counterparts including Jaishankar to apprise them about the US actions.
