In statements after appearing before the Joint Commission for the EU in the Congress of Deputies, the head of Diplomacy has justified her “great joy” at the fact that Biden is a “president who believes in multilateralism, in dialogue, in the pact, in the negotiation and that represents interests but also values, something with which Spain feels very identified. “
Likewise, he highlighted the milestone that implies that Harris is the first vice president of the United States, “because of what this implies commitment and advancement of equality” in this country and for “all of us who look at ourselves in some way in the United States. “.
Once Biden takes office in a few hours and his government is formed, González Laya pointed out, it will be necessary to get to work “to promote a new transatlantic relationship and also closer relations between Spain and the United States.”
At the bilateral level, the minister has indicated that the Government is committed “to a relationship that is broad and deep as deep are our ties and our citizen, business, student and tourist ties.”
