“They wanted to transpose an issue between people into a diplomatic issue and it seems to me that it was done in very bad faith,” said the Argentine spokesperson.

Milei’s words led the Spanish Government to call its ambassador in Buenos Aires for sine die consultations and demand a public apology from the Argentine president.

The spokesperson reiterated that Milei “would never put any relationship with any country at risk,” and asked several members of the Spanish Executive to apologize for having insinuated that the Argentine president consumes “substances.”for having described the Libertarian Government as a “government of hate”, for having accused it of “denialism and attacking democracy” and for having “involved” in the internal politics of Argentina.

The spokesperson described Milei’s official trip to Spain as “successful” and highlighted the president’s meeting with a group of Spanish businessmen with interests in Argentina, among whom he highlighted executives from BBVA, Banco Santander, Iberia, Mapfre, Telefónica or to the president of the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE), Antonio Garamendi.
