Minister of Foreign Affairs – José Manuel Albares – has requested an urgent statement which is to be delivered to the Congress of Deputies tomorrow regarding the situation in the Ukraine.
It’s understood Mr. Albares is to provide an update on the Spanish position over the worsening crisis in Eastern Europe, as well as to provide law makers an update on the latest European Council of Foreign Ministers meeting which is taking place today.
The update comes after prime minister Pedro Sanchez called for dialogue over the escalating crisis, saying now was the time for “diplomacy”.
Last week it was confirmed that two naval vessels are to arrive in the coming days in the region as part of a NATO operation.
