In 2016 we will celebrate 30 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Spain.
The peoples of Israel and Spain are united by a long mutual history. The establishment of official diplomatic relations between Spain and the young Jewish State marked both peoples' determination to open a new chapter in our relations, looking forward without forgetting the past. Our two peoples have much in common – the cultural and economic relations as well as growing tourism that have developed in recent decades reflect this bond.
To mark the issue of this stamp, which serves as a symbol of the friendly relations between Israel and Spain, we call upon the citizens of Spain and Israel to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our diplomatic relations, and hope that the next 30 years will be even more fruitful than the last.
