MADRID – Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy told Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Wednesday that his country was a loyal partner for the Latin American nation.
Rajoy received Peña Nieto at the Palace of Moncloa – the PM’s official residence – where he expressed his satisfaction over the renewal of an agreement between Mexico and the European Union on enriching economic and business ties.
“Spain is a loyal partner and a bridge between Europe and Latin America,” said Rajoy.
Peña Nieto was on Wednesday wrapping up a European tour, which saw him making stops in the northern German city of Hannover and The Hague in The Netherlands.
Rajoy tweeted photos of his meeting with the Mexican politician, along with comments highlighting the special relationship between both countries.
He said Spain would continue to cooperate in order to strengthen the “excellent partnership” with Mexico and Latin America.
Following talks with Rajoy, Peña Nieto, who was traveling with his wife, Angélica Rivera, was set to lunch with Spanish King Felipe VI and his wife, Queen Letizia.
