Middle East

Peace, stability and prosperity on the southern shore of the Mediterranean are priorities for National Security and for the security of Europe as a whole. Our strategic environment is undergoing transformation as a result of the processes of change... The Mediterranean continues to witness old and highly complex conflicts that affect everyone’s security. Recent crises such as that of Libya and, specifically, that of Syria are a reminder of the fragility of what is a sensitive area in security terms. In particular, in the framework of the EU Spain will continue to work towards a permanent solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in accordance with the agreed parameters... Spain will likewise contribute to a fair and lasting solution to the problem of Cyprus and will collaborate with Turkey as a regional actor important to the security and stability of the Eastern Mediterranean.
