(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Spokesman)

Israel is monitoring developments in Tibet with concern and hopes for a restoration of calm in the area as soon as possible.

The Foreign Ministry has issued a warning that Israeli nationals should postpone non-essential travel to Tibet and that those already there should avoid areas marked by rioting, as well as unnecessary movement in Lhasa and throughout the region, until the situation stabilizes.
