Historical Insights

Israel and Spain officially established diplomatic relations in January 1986. Prior to this, Spain’s political ties with Arab countries and its authoritarian regime under Franco were significant reasons for the delayed recognition of Israel. The embassy also engages with the Jewish community in Spain, one of the oldest in Europe, helping to preserve Jewish heritage and culture while promoting Israel’s image and interests.

Currently, the position of the Israeli ambassador to Spain is vacant. The previous ambassador, Rodica Radian-Gordon, was recalled to Jerusalem for consultations following a diplomatic dispute between Israel and Spain, triggered by comments from Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez criticizing Israel’s actions in Gaza. This recall is part of a broader diplomatic tension and there hasn’t been an announcement regarding her replacement or return to Madrid as of now​.
