We feel very secure in India: Israeli envoy

 India will not tolerate attacks on diplomats on its soil, Israel's envoy here said Monday, adding that Israeli diplomats ''feel very secure'' in India.

"It is very clear to me that no one in India is going to tolerate such a vicious attack on diplomats on its soil," Israeli ambassador Alon Ushpiz told TimesNow television.
The ambassador, however, declined to discuss security issues related to the Israeli embassy and its staff in India.

"We feel very secure in India, we have the full cooperation of your authorities, we have full confidence in the Indian authorities," he said.

He added that India and Israel had "very solid cooperation" in many areas.
Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna has telephoned his Israeli diplomat to offer his apologies over the attack, the envoy said.
