Santo Domingo (EFE).- The head of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez, held a meeting in Santo Domingo this Saturday with the President of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, and which was attended by the High Representative for Foreign Policy of the EU, Josep Borrell .
The meeting was held before the start of the sessions of the XXVIII Ibero-American Summit that convenes in Santo Domingo the leaders of the region to address common challenges.
While waiting for the Spanish and Argentine governments to report the details of the meeting, the
Sánchez and Fernández’s meeting with Borrell (all of them dressed in guayaberas) is part of Spain’s desire to strengthen the ties of the European Union with Latin America.
An objective that will be present in the intervention of the President of the Government at this summit and that will be one of the axes of the Spanish presidency of the EU in the second half of this year.
Borrell traveled from Brussels to the Dominican capital on Sánchez’s plane after concluding the meeting of the European Council, and it is the first time that the High Representative for Foreign Policy of the EU participates in this meeting of the entire Ibero-American community.
