October 18, 2023

He commented on how events in the Middle East are clearly having a destabilizing impact across the world. We've seen incidents in Europe, but also in the US, in China. As a result, some countries are paying "more vigilance towards specific potential targets linked to either Jewish communities or potentially Muslim communities."
