Ibero-American Summit Sánchez accuses Feijóo of "ignorance" and "insolvency" for accusing him of "paying homage to autocrats"

The confrontation between the Government and the PP once again escalates. In La Moncloa there is a major anger with Alberto Núñez Feijóo after the latter's words accused the President of the Government of "paying homage to autocrats" in full celebration of the Ibero-American summit. Pedro Sánchez has accused the opposition leader of "ignorance" and has recovered the message of "insolvency" and "bad faith" with which they already dialectically fought the Galician leader.

Latin America stirs up a hard clash between the Government and the PP. The King and Pedro Sánchez have attended the XXVIII Ibero-American Summit this weekend in Santo Domingo. In Madrid, the PP has counterprogrammed him with an act under the slogan Europe is Hispanic. And despite the distance of 6,700 kilometers, the box of thunder has been uncovered. In the act promoted by the popular, Feijóo accused Sánchez of "paying homage to autocratic rulers." Criticism coinciding in time with the plenary session of the summit and with its mind set on leaders such as the Venezuelan Nicolás Maduro who, however, did not attend the summit.

The anger in the Government reaches the President of the Government, who has not hesitated to accuse the leader of the opposition of ignoring what they are like, what they mean, what is the development of the Ibero-American summits. It has disfigured "the gaps of ignorance" that it has in matters, in this specific case to the celebration of these appointments, a format that has Spain among its promoters and to which governments of different political persuasions have attended accompanying the King in the last 30 years.

When the team of the President of the Government learned in Santo Domingo of Feijóo's statements, the anger was in crescendo. Government sources showed their indignation and described the leader of the PP as "ignorant" and "irresponsible". Likewise, they emphasize that the King and Josep Borrell, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the European Commission, are also present at the meeting. They wonder in the Government if Feijóo means that "they are also meeting with autocrats at this summit."

Sánchez wanted to go one step further and focus on the team that surrounds Feijóo, after Esteban González Pons, one of the main advisers to the PP leader, accused the chief executive that this weekend he was going to star in a photo "with a couple of dictators". Without mentioning anyone in particular, Sánchez's message has been clear, upsetting him that he has not been able to "fill in" his "lacunae of ignorance" "forming teams that advise him on history and on how the Ibero-American summits develop" .

In line with the allusion to "autocrats", in the Government they remember the photos of José María Aznar with Fidel Castro and that Mariano Rajoy has also participated in Ibero-American summits such as the one held in Veracruz in 2014. Rajoy himself, in In 2010, he demanded that Zapatero explain "well" his absence at the Ibero-American Summit that was held in Argentina, in Mar de Plata. The socialist president did not attend due to the economic crisis, but Rajoy reminded him that the relationship with Latin America is a priority for Spain.
