Islamic state, IS, has published maps where Spain and the Iberian Peninsula are included as "future control zones".
The State Secretary at the Spanish Ministry of Defence Alejandro Alvargonzález, said in an interview with the radio station Cadena SER on Friday, that Spain do take these threats seriously.
"We urge the international community to take action to curb the activity of this movement," says Alejandro Alvargonzález.
Islamic State is already a threat to countries like Algeria and Egypt. Published maps show that Spain is seen as a "future control zone" for radical Islamists.
Alvargonzález agrees with Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo's earlier statement that he is concerned by the Islamic state's expansion to more countries and that it would be "a real threat to national security".
At the moment Spain has 435 troops involved in operations in Afghanistan as part of the first phase of a new NATO mission.
