Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly, speaking after Israel fended off Iranian drone and missile strikes, says she told her Israeli counterpart that the conflict must not spread to the region.

“We are clearly pushing for de-escalation and we need to make sure that the conflict doesn’t extend to the region. So that is why I’ve been clear to my counterpart in Israel — please take the win, and make sure that we can work together to bring back peace in the region,” she tells reporters in Ottawa.
