ABSTRACT
Iberian relations are today a particularly important support to the two peninsular countries. Nevertheless, this involvement does not naturally result in a balanced geopolitical and geostrategic relationship in international terms. There are two fundamental issues that remain unresolved: the fear, created by some Portuguese sectors, of a Spanish imposition; and Portugal’s relations with Spanish autonomous regions, particularly with their nationalist nuclei. In this situation, Portugal is interested in an ever increasing interpenetration with Spain, configuring an Iberian regional bloc.
