Spanish ambassador reprimanded for PA state bid support

The Foreign Ministry on Monday reprimanded the Spanish ambassador in Israel, after Spanish Foreign Minister Trinidad Jimenez said that Spain hopes a meeting of European Union foreign ministers on September 2 will bring progress toward the recognition of a Palestinian state.
Jimenez said in an interview with El Pais newspaper published on Sunday that “There’s the feeling that now is the time to do something, to give the Palestinians the hope that a state could become reality.”
