Spain has recalled a frigate accompanying a US aircraft carrier to the Middle East because of rising tensions between Washington and Tehran, the defence ministry said Tuesday. “For the moment the frigate Mendez Nunez has left the combat group of the USS Abraham Lincoln,” a ministry spokesman told AFP, confirming a report in the Spanish daily El Pais. “It’s a temporary withdrawal, decided by Defence Minister Margarita Robles, as long as the American aircraft carrier is in this zone,” the spokesman added.
