Kremlin urges de-escalation between Iran and Israel

Russia is in dialogue with both Iran and Israel and urged the need for de-escalation in the Middle East, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov says.

“We are extremely concerned about the escalation of tensions in the region and we call on all countries in the region to exercise restraint. Further escalation is in no one’s interests,” Peskov tells reporters.

Peskov said that Russia continues to have close contacts with Iran and also has constructive contacts with Israel.

When asked if Tehran had warned Russia ahead of time about the strikes on Israel, Peskov says he has nothing to say on the matter.
