Moncloa Palace, Madrid

Sánchez stressed the need to strengthen relations between Spain and Iceland and their willingness to establish a multilateral agenda to work together on issues such as climate change, equality and individual rights and freedoms.

Sánchez stressed that there are many areas in which the two countries could collaborate, particularly in the multilateral agenda, including women's rights, the rights of the LGTBIQ+ community and the fight against climate change. The interest of Icelanders in Spanish culture is important. In fact, Spanish is the most chosen non-compulsory language as a foreign language.

The President underlined the government's support for Ukraine, and congratulated Jakobsdóttir on the rapid adoption of the EU's sanctions packages against Russia. "We hope that this Summit will give a strong signal of unity and cohesion. That is our best weapon," Sánchez stressed.
