Russian FM: ‘We told the Israelis that Iran does not want escalation’

Russia has made clear to Jerusalem that Tehran “does not want escalation,” Moscow’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov says after reports Israel had carried out retaliatory strikes against Iran.

“There have been telephone contacts between the leadership of Russia and Iran, our representatives and the Israelis. We made it very clear in these conversations, we told the Israelis that Iran does not want escalation,” Lavrov says in an interview with a Russian radio station.
