The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Spain believes that Russia fighting terrorism in Syria is conducted in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions, the State Secretary of Spain for Foreign Affairs, Ignacio Ibanez, said.

“We are aware that Russia is involved in the fight against Daesh, whilst respecting the Security Council resolutions in this regard,” said Ibanez at a meeting with the Chairman of the Upper House committee for foreign affairs Konstantin Kosachev.

According to him, Spain “was never a part of the anti-ISIS coalition”, but supports a political solution to the crisis in Syria within the framework of the UN.
