Lahbib, for her part, condemned the attack on Iran's diplomatic mission in Damascus but called for efforts to prevent the spread of tensions.

In yet another phone call, Amirabdollahian exchanged views on bilateral and regional development, including the Israeli genocidal war in Gaza with Constantinos Kombos, Foreign Minister Cyprus,

The top Iranian diplomat explained the positions of his country on bilateral ties. Kombos, for his part, called Israel's attack on Iran’s diplomatic building unacceptable but urged to de-escalate the tension in the region.

Also on Saturday, Amirabdollahian discussed a wide range of issues with Dutch Foreign Minister, Hanke Bruins Slot.

Both diplomats emphasized the importance of maintaining the path of dialogue and cooperation between the two countries at different levels.

Referring to the Israeli regime's attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Amirabdollahian accused the US, Britain and France of creating obstacles in issuing even a statement on the flagrant violation of international regulations and conventions.

He also called for the end of the genocide in Gaza as the way out of the turmoil in the region and warned that everyone will suffer if the international community fails to stop the Israeli regime’s genocidal war. Slot echoed Amirabdollahian’s call and said that expanding the scope of the war is not in anyone's interest.
