Spanish FM: Allies united against Russian threats

Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Albares stated on Friday that Europe and NATO must stand united in the face of Russia's threats.

"Next Monday, there will be a Council of Foreign Ministers of the European Union presided by the High Representative. The situation in Ukraine will be the focus of our discussion. I am sure that unity will prevail - unity in dialogue in the face of the Ukrainian crisis and unity in deterrence if necessary. We are not in that scenario, but that also has to be clear," said Albares to Europa Press.

The minister's remarks come as the Spanish government sent warships to join NATO's naval forces in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea as tensions in the region escalate.
