King Juan Carlos Acknowledges Great Bonds Between Spain and the U.S.

WASHINGTON – King Juan Carlos I, who last year abdicated in favor of his son Felipe VI, acknowledged during the inauguration in Washington of the Spanish-Portuguese cultural festival “Iberian Suite: Global Arts Remix” the strength of the ties that link Spain with the United States.

Juan Carlos presided over the opening of the event and gave a speech during the dinner held at the Kennedy Center late Tuesday in Washington D.C. he said he was very proud of the “deep Spanish historical roots that once traveled to America.”

The festival, which explores the Spanish-Portuguese cultural diversity and international influence, began with a show that included the performances of fado Portuguese singer Carminho, Spanish pianist Javier Perianes and American soprano Harolyn Blackwell.

A gala dinner, in which guests enjoyed a menu prepared by Spanish cook Jose Andres, followed.

The king noted that the Spanish heritage still impregnated the art and culture throughout the country.

A classical, Jewish, Arabic and Christian heritage that, mixed with the richness of many American cultures, had shaped the reality of the New World.

Juan Carlos, who said he had many good memories from his previous stays at the U.S. capital, noted that the “Iberian Suite” festival opened the doors to a wonderful world that the Kennedy Center, Spain and Portugal wanted to share.
