Newsline: Russia’s embassy in Madrid says request to refuel warships in Spain withdrawn

Russia’s embassy in Madrid said Russia had withdrawn its request to refuel its warships in Spain. Russia scrapped plans to refuel Syria-bound warships in a Spanish port after Madrid came under NATO pressure to refuse access. On Wednesday, the Spanish Foreign Ministry requested a clarification of whether or not the Russian flotilla was heading for Syria. Then Russia withdrew the request to refuel warships in Spain’s North African section of Ceuta.
