The European Commission considers the decision of the Algerian authorities to freeze their commercial and political relations with Spain "extremely worrying" and asks them to "reconsider" this gesture, which constitutes a response to the abrupt change of position of the President of the Spanish Government on the issue of Occidental Sahara.
The Commission does not rule out preparing a report on the consequences of this rupture between Algiers and Madrid, which will very probably reflect the fact that another European country, Italy, has quickly occupied the commercial and economic positions from which the diplomatic crisis has expelled to Spain.
From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs they confirm that the Government is studying the possibility of denouncing Algeria against the European Union. “We are analyzing the implications and the national and European practical scope to give an adequate, serene, constructive and firm response in defense of the interests of Spain and Spanish companies,” say official sources. Minister Albares has expressed this Thursday that they will give "a serene, constructive response and in defense of Spain." Reports Angie Calero.
