Melbourne, Jan 11: Australia on Monday, Jan 11, said that recent attacks on Indians were not racially motivated.

Acting Foreign Minister of Australia Simon Crean said it was too early to conclude that the recent attacks on Indians were racially motivated.

"We are dealing with sensitive issues here, but the fact is... there is no evidence that they're racially based (attacks)," he was quoted by news agency as saying.

He also urged the Indian media to wait for the full facts.

"It is far better to... wait for the full facts, we would urge the Indian newspapers to do that," Crean said.

There have been a series of attacks on Indians in Australia over the last few months and the latest have resulted in two deaths.

However, Australia has maintained that the latest attacks were not racist in nature and cautioned against overreacting.
