India’s foreign minister has cautioned his Australian counterpart that the relations between the two countries could be strained unless Australia tackles the continuing attacks on Indian students studying there.
S.M. Krishna expressed his concerns during a phone call with Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith on Monday, an Indian government statement said.
Krishna “recalled that Australian leaders had, time and again, reassured India that the Australian authorities were treating the incidents of assaults with utmost seriousness. However, the incidents seem to be continuing,” the statement said.
