The Iraqi PM and the Spanish leader signed a declaration characterizing the situation in Gaza as "unbearable."

During a meeting in Baghdad, Sanchez and Al Sudani discussed the situation and prospects of the conflict in the Middle East.

At the conclusion of their meeting, they issued a joint statement in which Sanchez emphasized the rejection of civilian deaths in Gaza, especially among children and women.

The Spanish President condemned the humanitarian crisis caused by the Israeli offensive, called for an end to hostilities, and demanded a permanent ceasefire.

Sanchez stated that the international community and the parties in conflict should focus their efforts on establishing a serious and credible political process that leads to the effective realization of the two-state solution.

Sources from the Spanish government indicated that Iraqi authorities might be willing to progress in recognizing Israel as a state, which has not occurred thus far.

Sanchez and Al Sudani signed a joint declaration characterizing the situation in Gaza as "unbearable" and supporting the United Nations Security Council resolution of December 22, which urges the creation of conditions for a sustainable cessation of hostilities.
