Indian officials granted access to meet crew of cargo ship seized by Iran

Indian officials granted access to meet crew of cargo ship seized by Iran

In a statement from the foreign ministry of Iran, it was confirmed that Indian officials would be allowed to visit the 17 Indian crew members aboard the ship. This assurance followed a call from Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar to his Iranian counterpart, Amir Abdollahian, expressing concern for the crew's well-being.

India has been actively engaged in diplomatic efforts to secure the release of the crew members since the ship's seizure on Saturday. Mr Jaishankar emphasised the need for de-escalation and restraint amid rising tensions between Israel and Iran.

In a post on social media platform X, Mr Jaishankar highlighted the importance of diplomacy and avoiding further escalation. He reiterated his conversation with Iranian FM Amir Abdolahian, mentioning the release of the crew members and regional stability concerns.

The recent escalation of hostilities between Israel and Iran has raised concerns in the region. Iran's attack on Israel, coupled with retaliatory strikes, has prompted calls for immediate de-escalation and a return to diplomatic channels.

The Ministry of External Affairs has expressed serious concern over the situation and urged all parties to exercise restraint. India has called for a peaceful resolution and is closely monitoring developments in the region to ensure the safety of its citizens.

The permission granted to Indian officials to meet with the crew members is a positive step towards resolving the situation peacefully.
