    U.S.A and U.K backed forces conducted airstrikes across Yemen

External Affairs Minister of India Dr.S Jaishankar and U.S Secretary of State Antony Blinken had an interaction in the context of Yemen’s Houthi rebels’ attack on Israel-bound ships along the Red Sea. “The reckless nature of these attacks, threatening the free flow of commerce, endangering innocent mariners, and violating international law, formed a crucial part of the dialogue. The Secretary emphasised the Red Sea is a major commercial corridor that facilitates international trade and welcomed increased cooperation with India in defending freedom of navigation in the region,” statements from the US State Department summarised. 

Jaishankar too reiterated that the conversation with Antony Blinken was productive. “A good discussion this evening with my friend Anthony Blinken. Our conversation focused on maritime security challenges, especially the Red Sea region. Appreciated his insights on the ongoing situation in West Asia, including Gaza. We exchanged perspectives on developments pertaining to the Ukraine conflict. Looking forward to realising our extensive cooperation agenda for 2024,” he posted on the microblogging site X (formerly known as Twitter). 

The conflict in Hamas has escalated into an international conflict with the U.S.A and U.K backed forces conducting airstrikes across Yemen as a retaliation to the attack on ships by the Houthi.
