"We are deeply concerned about the escalation of the situation in the Sea of Azov and Russia’s actions there. We call for de-escalation and the observance of international law and freedom of navigation," he said.
The Spanish minister stressed that "the conflict in Ukraine is a huge challenge to security in Europe" and the international law must be restored.
"Spain will continue to defend the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine within internationally recognized borders," the Spanish foreign minister said.
