While it was not known what was discussed in the meeting with Modi, Zarif gave Doval firsthand account of the situation prevailing in Gulf region.

The Iranian foreign minister arrived here on Tuesday on a three-day visit in the midst of global focus on escalating tension between Iran and the U.S. following the killing of Soleimani in an American drone strike.

"India can play a role in de-escalating tensions in the Gulf region as New Delhi is an important player", Zarif was quoted as saying by PTI.

Hostilities between Iran and the USA reached a flashpoint in early January when senior Iranian general Qasem Soleimani was killed in a drone strike at Baghdad airport on President Donald Trump's orders.

"Who is celebrating the death of Gen Soleimani? Not ordinary people, but (Donald) Trump, (Mike) Pompeo and IS", he added. On Wednesday, he spoke at the fifth Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi where he described Soleimani as the "single most effective force against the Islamic State terrorist group".

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday Moscow has been urging Gulf countries to consider a common security mechanism for the region and it was time the world got rid of unilateral measures such as sanctions.

The Iranian minister added that the United States did not look at the prevailing situation in the Middle East from the perspective of the people of that region and described the leadership in Washington as both "ignorant and arrogant", and added that when both of these qualities combine, "it becomes a disaster, particularly if you have a lot of power". The strike was launched in retaliation to the killing of Soleimani.

Zarif said Iran had sent a message to Washington through Swiss mediators on the night of the missile strike, calling it an act of self-defence in response to Soleimani's killing.

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif on Thursday held extensive talks on fast-evolving situation in the Gulf region in the wake of frayed ties between Iran and the U.S. over killing of Commander Qasem Soleimani.
