PRESS RELEASE 110
Meeting of the minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation with International Jewish Organizations
29/09/2018

The Minister of Foreign Affairs met, on 27 September, with international Jewish organisations in New York, on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly. Participants at the meeting included the American Jewish Committee, the World Jewish Congress, the Anti-Defamation League, Bnai Brith International and the NCSEJ (National Coalition Supporting Eurasian Jewry).

At this first meeting, the Minister reiterated his commitment to fighting all forms of anti-Semitism, xenophobia and racism. He pointed out that the Spanish Criminal Code is pioneering in typifying the crime of incitement to hatred, including anti-Semitism. The Jewish organisations commended the fact that Spanish education includes memory of the Holocaust and the adoption of Law 12/15 granting nationality to Sephardic Jews of Spanish origin. The Minister, for his part, announced his will to preserve the Jewish legacy in Spain and to extend cooperation with the Jewish world through, among other groups, the Centro Sefarad-Israel. 

The Minister and his interlocutors also discussed Spanish-Israeli relations and the Israel-Palestine conflict
