The Spanish government approved a draft law on Friday allowing descendants of Sephardic Jews expelled from the country in 1492 to seek Spanish nationality without giving up their current citizenship.

Although the law must be approved by Spanish parliament before it can become the law of the land, there was little doubt that it would be passed, with the ruling conservatives holding an absolute parliamentary majority.

"This law establishes the criteria for the concession of (Spanish) nationality for the Sephardic citizens," Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria said during a press conference after the weekly cabinet meeting.
