India to boost security at Israeli embassy

Krishna tells Lieberman India will do all it can to protect Israeli embassy, says perpetrators of Monday's attack will be found, prosecuted

India's Foreign Minister SM Krishna expressed his country's shock over Monday's terror attack in New Delhi in a conversation with Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.


Lieberman, who was briefed on the events earlier, thanked Krishna and said India is a true friend of Israel. He added that he was sure India will take any measures needed in order to apprehend the terrorists responsible for the bombing.

"Israeli diplomats are on the front lines," Lieberman said earlier, adding that Israel "knows how to identify those responsible for the blast and will not be deterred by terrorists."


Krishna told Lieberman that India will make every effort to nab the perpetrators of the attack. He added that his country will provide all required security to Israel's embassy.


An initial probe into the attack revealed that Tal Yehoshua Koren, the wife of a diplomat stationed with the Defense Ministry's mission in India, was injured in the blast on her way to pick up her children from school.


In light of the New Delhi bombing and thwarted attack in Tbilisi, Lieberman is due to convene high ranking officials in order to evaluate the current situation and issue out an updated procedure protocol for foreign delegates abroad.
