Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday met with Spanish King Felipe VI in the capital Madrid, according to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA.
During the meeting, Abbas briefed the Spanish King on developments in the Palestinian territories and Israeli violations, the agency said.
Abbas also reiterated the Palestinian support for Spain’s territorial integrity following Catalan's unilateral declaration of independence last month.
The Spanish government stripped the region of its autonomy after its controversial independence vote in parliament, effectively taking charge of its government.
Abbas arrived in Madrid on Sunday for an official visit to Spain upon an invitation from King Felipe VI.
