Spain calls for ensuring freedom of navigation in Sea of Azov

Spain is very concerned about Russia’s actions in the Sea of Azov and calls for respecting international law and ensuring freedom of navigation.

Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell said during the 25th meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Milan, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"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.

According to him, the Minsk agreements remain the best option for a peaceful resolution of the conflict. Also, Spain will continue to support the work of the OSCE SMM in Ukraine.
