Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez strongly criticized Western nations for their perceived “double standards” regarding the conflicts in Gaza and Ukraine during his speech at the NATO summit.

Sanchez pointed out the discrepancy in the level of international support and media coverage given to Ukraine compared to Gaza. He argued that while the West has shown unwavering solidarity and support for Ukraine amidst its conflict with Russia, the same level of concern and action has not been extended to the Palestinian territories suffering from ongoing hostilities.

“If we are telling our people that we are supporting Ukraine because we are defending the international law, this is the same to what we have to do towards Gaza,” Sanchez said at NATO’s 75th anniversary summit in Washington, DC, on Wednesday.

The Prime Minister’s comments come at a time of heightened tensions in Gaza, with recent escalations leading to significant casualties and humanitarian concerns.

Sanchez’s remarks highlight a growing call within international circles for more balanced and equitable responses to global conflicts.

Sanchez’s address at the summit has sparked a broader debate on the West’s foreign policy priorities and the need for a more uniform approach to international conflicts. His candid criticism underscores the importance of re-evaluating how global powers respond to crises in different regions.
