State Secretary for the European Union Calls a Meeting with the Ambassador of Belgium in Madrid

​Last Friday 28 September, the Ambassador of Belgium in Madrid was once again called to a meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation by the State Secretary for the European Union

02/10/2018

​In the meeting, the State Secretary reiterated the profound discomfort caused by the latest statements made by the President of the Flemish Parliament, in his institutional capacity, in which he reaffirms his judgements regarding Spanish democracy which he had previously outlined in a letter sent recently to Came Forcadell. 

The State Secretary for the European Union transmitted to the Belgian Ambassador that Spain is a full democracy, and that no international institution or Member Estate of the European Union questions this, as such he considers the statements from the President of the Flemish Parliament to be unacceptable for a country such as Spain that is a friend, ally and member of the EU.
