Spanish Minister of Defence, María Dolores de Cospedal, is visiting Australia until 6 June with the aim to strengthen the ties between Spain and Australia in terms of defence cooperation.

 

The Minister has visited and sailed on board of the Spanish frigate “Cristobal Colón” that is currently deployed in Australia, working as the perfect training platform for the Royal Australian Navy forces, that will later serve on board of the Spanish built Hobart Class destroyers.

 

Minister Cospedal will hold working meetings both with the Minister for Defence Industry, Chistropher Pyne, and with the Minister of Defence, Marise Payne.

 

Spain and Australia bilateral relations in terms of security, defence and defence industries are deep and fluent; both countries having signed bilateral agreements and their respective navies carrying out joint naval exercises.
