The minister said the statement at an event in Delhi.

"India's way is not to be disruptive and it is more of a decider than an abstainer," said External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Wednesday while speaking at an event in Delhi.

"India's way is not to be mercantilist. It is not a disruptor and is firmly dealing with terrorism. India owes it to itself and to the world to be a just power," he said.

Iran responded with strikes on US bases in Iraq days later, but there were no American casualties. US President Donald Trump soon said that Tehran "for now...appears to be standing down".
