India condemns the suicide bomb attacks in Tel Aviv on 1st June which led to the loss of life and injuries to a large number of innocent people. Such act of violence cannot be justified on any grounds. India calls upon all parties of the region to show restraint and avoid measures which will vitiate the atmosphere and urges upon Israel and Palestinians to resume dialogue based on the Egyptian-Jordanian initiative and the Mitchell Committee Report. Only dialogue and negotiations can defuse escalation of violence in the region.
