At a press conference, Fernando Clavijo, senator for the Canary Islands, has criticized the negotiation of air control that is currently carried out from the islands, among other reasons, he explained, in compliance with UN resolutions.
The Canary Coalition candidate has indicated that “no one” knows under what conditions this negotiation is made, or in exchange for what, and for this reason he has demanded an explanation.
Fernando Clavijo has indicated that these negotiations became known after several senators asked the Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Manuel Albares, about the conclusions of the Spanish-Moroccan summit.
The candidate has indicated that the minister replied that he spoke almost daily with the president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, and that everything was going well, but, Fernando Clavijo added, “as we also read in the Moroccan press, we asked a question in writing”.
In the response, Fernando Clavijo has stated, it is recognized that the air control that is currently carried out from the Canary Islands is being negotiated, and he has added that this situation occurs after issues such as the “betrayal” of the Spanish Government to the Saharawi people, the oil prospecting and recognition of international waters.
If it continues like this, “one day we wake up and it turns out that the Canary Islands are also Morocco”, Fernando Clavijo concluded. EFE
