On August 28 in Paris, Spanish Prime Minister Mario Rajoy appealed to representatives of France, Italy, and Germany to step up cooperation in the fight against terrorism.

Rajoy called for a deeper analysis of the existing cross-border counter-terrorism cooperation between countries and a review of its functionality so that it can be strengthened in the future. He not only called for strengthening cooperation in the fight against terrorism at the EU level but at the national level as well and wants to open this issue with representatives of France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Great Britain at the G-6 summit during their regular meeting in Spain. Spain has introduced stricter security measures after the attack by the Islamic State (IS) in Barcelona on 17 August, where 13 people died. In Spain's case, coordination of police forces is problematic due to strong decentralization. The question remains whether Spain will deploy the army, just as France did in Operation Sentinelle.
