Israel’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday called for the ongoing crisis in Spain to be resolved “quickly and peacefully,” in the first comments from Jerusalem on Catalonia’s bid for independence.

The Foreign Ministry appeared to side with Spain, saying in a statement the two countries “share longstanding, strong and friendly relations, rooted in our common historical heritage and shared democratic values.”

“Israel hopes that the internal crisis in Spain will be resolved quickly and peacefully and through broad national consensus,” it said.

Spain on Friday requested that Israel align itself with many other Western nations in rejecting a vote declaring Catalonian independence, according to a report on the NRG news site. The vote was passed earlier that day by the majority of delegates in the regional government of Catalonia, a semi-autonomous area in the kingdom’s northeast.

But senior Israeli diplomats had decided in internal talks to neither oppose nor support the declared independence of Catalonia, which Spain says is illegal and anti-constitutional, the report said.
