Thousands of innocent people died in the heinous attacks of 11 September 2001 in New York, 11 March 2004 in Madrid, and 7 July 2005 in London, planned and perpetrated by the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda. For some, these crimes marked a turning point, and a sea change in how States and their citizens perceive security issues. Today, terrorism represents the greatest threat to achievements, and rights gained, in such areas as justice, security, and freedoms. There can be no justification whatsoever for terrorist acts, which deserve the strongest and unreserved condemnation.
  • Terrorist threat

    Terrorism constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security. This represents one of the greatest violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms, as well as of the main principles of democracy and respect for the rule of law.

  • Fight against terrorism through international forums
    International cooperation is the only way to effectively tackle a threat that cannot be dealt with on an exclusively national basis. In this regard, the main international organisations have taken on the fight against terrorism as one of their main tasks. Spain advocates a comprehensive approach to the international strategies on the fight against terrorism, such that this threat will be tackled in all its dimensions, including the factors that lead to violent radicalisation.
  • Victims of Terrorism
    Spain places great importance on the assistance, defence and support of victims of terrorism, thus catering, on the one hand, to a fundamental element of justice and, on the other hand, to the de-legitimising effect of publicising their memory and their testimonies to help defeat this universal blight.
