Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani has urged for an “absolute de-escalation” in response to reports of an Israeli airstrike on Iran, with the issue set to be a topic of discussion at a G7 meeting in Capri, as reported by Agence France-Presse (AFP).

Speaking from the Italian island where discussions among the G7 foreign ministers are being held, Tajani emphasized the importance of caution to prevent further escalation. “We invite everyone to be cautious to avoid an escalation,” he stated during an interview with RAI news.

The G7 group, comprising the UK, US, France, Germany, Japan, and Canada, is aligned in seeking a significant reduction in tensions in the region.

Canadian Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly also commented on the situation via X, stating, “We are monitoring the situation closely. We will address the situation with the foreign ministers at the G7 session this morning in Italy.”

The G7 ministers, including US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, have been meeting on Capri since Wednesday, with the talks scheduled to conclude on Friday. Although the primary focus of Friday’s sessions was on escalating tensions in the Indo-Pacific, Tajani confirmed that the recent developments involving Iran would be addressed.
