After Iran attacked Israel in retaliation, Spain’s prime minister Pedro Sanchez reportedly voiced his “utmost concern,” according to CNN.

Sanchez wrote on X, “A regional escalation must be avoided at all costs.”

Premier Luis Montenegro of Portugal stated on X that his country “vehemently condemns the attack.”

“We call for restraint, in order to avoid an escalation of the violence,” he stated in a letter.
