The Middle East and the Maghreb
Over its long tradition as a country of understanding between cultures and civilisations, Spain has maintained, and continues to maintain, an active foreign policy in both the Maghreb and the Middle East

This is a region undergoing profound changes and which constitutes one of the fundamental pillars of our foreign policy, establishing the stability and progress of both regions and the resolution of existing conflicts as priorities of that policy.

  • Spain and the Maghreb
    The Maghreb, a region of North Africa comprising Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya, has long been a priority of Spanish foreign policy. Factors such as geographical proximity, historical links and substantial human, economic and cultural exchanges have favoured and driven relations with Spain's southern neighbours.
  • Spain and the Middle East
    Spain's relationship with the Middle East is a neighbourly one, characterised by cooperation and that, over recent years, has been strengthened by commercial agreements that have allowed for the export of Spanish goods and technology for the construction of new infrastructure in these countries, in particular in the Gulf
