The president assured that the only representation that matters is his own and that no one in NATO cares whether Yolanda Diaz is in the meeting at the end of June.

The government’s president has labeled “testimonial posts” this Tuesday as complaints from his government partners about NATO and the historic summit to be held in Madrid at the end of June, he made ironic about those parties. The Coalition that make up the Atlantic today criticized the same four decades ago and assured that in their meetings at the highest level, they paid little concern, nor much interest, to the grievances of United We Can. “I respect the position of the testimonial, because moreover some come from a position against NATO that comes from afar, when those of us who were younger here. In 1982 I was 10 years old and some already demonstrated were doing,” he said. Just a day after the conclusion of a summit with its community partners from Brussels and receiving the organization’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Madrid.
For months there have been doubts and questions about NATO’s response to Madrid and the announcements of United We Can in NATO. Both the Russian invasion of Ukraine and military aid and the summit organized by Spain to commemorate the 40th anniversary of its accession. The Alliance is a rock in these types of issues, it does not enter into political debates, it does not engage in national issues, attacks or self-service leaks never surface, as is the case in the European Union. His disquiet and sometimes even resentment at the position of those parties that openly call for its dissolution, such as the United Left, is clear, but as long as the talks are with Moncloa, whose line is clear, they should be no more. Not a problem. When the real enemy has nuclear weapons and there is a backyard war, the comments of minority parties without direct competition are more than secondary.
“Years have passed, the geopolitical context is different and Spain’s membership has been going on for 40 years. My responsibility is to guarantee the defense and security of my country, and Spain is based and consolidated by membership in the European Union and NATO. And this Known from Finland and Sweden, who knock on doors, from Portugal to Spain, from north to south and from east to west, from right and left. I know for sure: this is a wise move. NATO” The Spanish President is settled.
Criticism and division in the coalition has increased manifold these days. One faction even accused the executive of bias for contracts to organize the event, and Vice President Yolanda Diaz defended the process. Sánchez would prefer silence, but he is not uncomfortable, while his companions show their friction, their quarrels, and their most radical position on a subject that arouses no interest in the Spanish population. This is not 1982. In addition, it allows you to reinforce your institutional role, your position. “This is a very important summit that will mark the first and later in the history of NATO not only for the ratification of the strategic concept, or for the inclusion of the two planned democracies, and for the strengthening of ties between NATO and the European Union, which are complementary. But for everything that the southern part represents, the stability of the Sahel in terms of security, which is essential for Spain”, he said.
This is why the president has limited himself to talking about the “testimonial positions” of his colleagues, reiterating that the debate on whether or not UP ministers are present during the summit is irrelevant. “I have already attended several NATO summits and all I remember is the host government presiding over it,” Sanchez said shrugging his shoulders. “Nobody raised anything with me, on the contrary, just yesterday the Secretary General praised the work and commitment of the government. I understand the debate in national politics but this does not translate to NATO, where the degree of commitment is total and Stoltenberg and the rest of the allies”, settled the socialist leader.
