India's Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna phoned Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman Monday and expressed his "shock" over the attack in New Delhi.

According to Liberman's office, Krishna said India would make all efforts to find those responsible and bring them to justice.  He also said that India would provide the Israeli embassy with all the security it needed, and stressed the importance that India placed on its friendship with Israel.

Krishna visited Israel last month, the highest level Indian official to do so in more than a decade. 

Liberman thanked his Indian counterpart and said Israel viewed India as a true friend. He said this was not the first time terrorists have targeted Israeli diplomatic missions abroad, and that "no Israel diplomat anywhere in the world will be deterred by terrorism."

Liberman will convene a meting of senior ministry officials in the early evening to assess the situation and – where necessary – provide new security directives to the country's other diplomatic missions around the world.
