April 13-14, which Israel defeated with the help of its partners. This was a dangerous escalation as Iran fired hundreds of ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and drones,” the leaders said.

“We will hold the Iranian government accountable for its malicious and destabilizing actions and we stand ready to adopt further sanctions or take other actions now and in response to further destabilizing initiatives,” the leaders said.

They added: “In light of reports of strikes on April 19 (from Israel to Iran), we urge all parties to work to prevent further escalation.”
