The President of the United States has excluded the head of the Spanish government from a meeting dedicated to investigating the latest developments in the Russian-Ukrainian crisis. The White House indicated in a press release that Joe Biden invited to the meeting, organized by videoconference last night, “European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel, French President Emmanuel Macron, of Germany Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Prime Minister Mario Draghi of Italy, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, President of Poland Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson”.
A serious blow to the socialist who approached the United States and garnered twenty-seven more NATO support in his performance against Morocco. Last week, the Iberian press speculated that talks between the Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Manuel Albers, and his US counterpart, Antony Blinkán, would greatly benefit Spain in its disputes with Morocco.
Morocco in the Count of Sanchez
“The crisis with Morocco is one of the reasons for Spain’s strong support for the United States in Ukraine,” El Confidential wrote. The same goes for El Periodico, which states that “Sánchez’s rapid response to the Ukrainian crisis can also be explained by his own interests: the response to the independence movement (in Catalonia, editor’s note) and the future of Rabat.” The need to strengthen against Western Sahara”.
“Albares is asking about the EU and NATO’s commitment to Morocco by taking advantage of the deployment in Russia,” El Espaol emphasized on his part. Most of the media, which made this link with Washington’s support of Madrid on the Ukrainian crisis, featured their articles with the famous photo between Pedro Sánchez and Joe Biden, taken on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Brussels on June 14. went.
A picture that nonetheless immortalizes the failure of the Spanish government’s communications campaign on a “meeting” between two officers that did not happen and was summed up in seconds while on the move. Then the two leaders did not have the opportunity to address hot topics such as Morocco’s recognition of the Sahara by the Trump administration.
As a reminder, from July 20 to 23, Pedro Sánchez toured the United States, but without managing to snag an appointment with Joe Biden or any other member of his administration. It was not until August 21, and the return of the Taliban to power in Afghanistan, that the current White House tenant telephoned Pedro Sánchez to welcome Afghan allies with international forces to a military base near Madrid.
