“I have the feeling that the lack of responsibility that Albares is talking about applies to his government partners,” he exclaims.
MADRID, June 23 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has disgraced Foreign Minister José Manuel Albares, whose criticism of the PP for “lack of state consciousness” in foreign policy coincides with the organization of “anti-Nato demonstrations” by his government partners at the Atlantic Alliance summit in Madrid.
This was explained after the head of Spanish diplomacy called on the PP to “put its shoulder behind the wheel” in foreign policy this Wednesday in the plenary session of the Congress, reaffirming that it was “loyal to the Spanish” and ” State consciousness” is missing “.
Speaking to journalists in Brussels, where he attended the European People’s Party (EPP) summit, Feijóo assured that he was “surprised” that Albares “complained ahead of the NATO summit about a party that supports the government” and his Lage presents proposals while “part of the government has called for a demonstration against” the Atlantic Alliance.
In this sense, Feijóo has criticized Podemos, a party that is part of the government, taking part in this demonstration, alluding to the alternative summit for peace and rejection of NATO that will take place this weekend and that there is the participation of positions the IU Executive and also by Podemos.
“When we come to government, I want the opposition to support us the way we do on defense and security! I feel that the lack of accountability that Albares speaks of does not apply to the opposition but to his government partners,” he exclaimed.
The leader of the PP has assured that the proposals to the government of the kind proposed by the PP “serve the country” and he called on Sánchez to return to a foreign policy consensus on issues such as Morocco and Algeria.
NO INVITATION TO THE NATO SUMMIT
Just this Thursday, the Secretary General of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, complained that the government had neither responded to its offer of a state defense pact nor received an invitation to attend the NATO summit.
“The government does not have any dialogue with the main opposition party. I think they should correct a little,” Gamarra told journalists in the corridors of Congress, where he stressed that they also have no news on what measures will be included in the anti-crisis decree, which the Council of Ministers will approve on Saturday.
The “People’s Party” sent the government a proposal for a state pact on security and defense a week ago, coinciding with the NATO summit starting next Tuesday in Madrid, but they have received no reply. “No confirmation of receipt. That has never happened before,” complain party circles, who also find it “a little strange” that opposition leader Alberto Núñez Feijóo was not invited to the Atlantic Summit.
