The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan issued a statement expressing deep concern over the recent escalation of tensions in the Middle East. The statement comes in the wake of Iran's retaliatory strike against Israel on April 13, marking an escalation in hostilities in the region.

Uzbekistan urges all parties involved to exercise restraint and refrain from further military actions. The ministry underscored the importance of seeking a swift political resolution to the conflict, underlining the potential for further escalation and widespread military confrontation if tensions continue to rise.

The recent exchange of hostilities has heightened the threat of a broader regional conflict, drawing swift responses from global leaders. The White House has indicated opposition to any Israeli counterattack against Iran, while Israel has requested condemnation of Iran's actions and the designation of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization in a scheduled UN Security Council meeting.
