It was a committed trip. Delicate. On February 2, Spain is celebrated at the Dubai Expo. An important appointment that requires a high institutional representation. It could be the king or the president of the government. Finally, it will be Pedro Sánchez who moves to the United Arab Emirates (EAU).
The complexity and discomfort of displacement are caused by the fact that John Carlos I resides in Emirates since he left Spain in August 2020 before the controversy generated by his opaque businesses and after being repudiated by Felipe VI.
Emeritus himself, as he informed this diary, transferred to businessmen, the importance of having a presence at the highest level at the Expo, pointing out the convenience of Felipe VI. After analyzing the options and the situation, the Government has decided that it is the Chief of the Executive and not the head of the State, who leads the Spanish delegation to be transferred to Emirates. Sánchez will travel accompanied by several ministers.
Although this decision is detached from the fact that it is the country of residence of Don Juan Carlos, the truth is that if the presence of Pedro Sánchez is already uncomfortable - Senchez maintains that he must give explanations - more I would still have been For Felipe VI.
The trip coincides, again, with the controversy on the possible return of the emeritus, who has transferred his desire to return to Spain when the Supreme Court Prosecutor Close, as it seems foreseen, the three investigations open against him. The Government, in view of that it does not foresee that in the future it has pending judicial causes, it is no longer opposed to this return and unload all responsibility of it in the real house.
It will not be the first visit of a Government member to Emirates. This week, the Minister of Transport, Raquel Sánchez, where she opened the week of travel and connectivity in the Spain pavilion of the Universal Exhibition. Neither the Minister nor the President will have an encounter or contact with Don Juan Carlos, they point out from the government.Updated Date: 11 January 2022, 14:41
