Mexico.- The monarchy of Spain is arrogant and makes the offended, declared with other words the Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador during this Saturday, September 11, reproaching that they are not apologized after the letter he sent.
Months ago the president of Mexico sent a letter to the Spanish monarchy asking him to apologize for the atrocities that were committed during the Conquest and the Colony.
“We asked them in a very respectful way to offer an apology, especially the Monarchy, for what was carried out in an abusive way in our country with the original communities, the repression that there was, the mass murders, the extermination, because they did not do it. they understood this way, they felt offended, I think they acted with pride, “said the Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
It was during an event with the media that the President of Mexico made the statements presented here. This event took place in Mazatlán, state of Sinaloa, where on this day he proposed to the governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel, as the new ambassador of Mexico in Spain.
López Obrador trusted that Ordaz Coppel, from the opposition Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), “will help to restore completely and in very good terms relations with Spain, which are of all kinds, mainly friendship with the Spanish people. “.
“Seeking to fully reestablish relations between Mexico and Spain, based on mutual respect, that they do not see us as they acted, because the neoliberal governments allowed it, that (not) they see us as a land of conquest”, stated the president about the Ordaz Coppel’s main mission in Spain
Since he assumed the Presidency in December 2018, López Obrador has denounced the actions of Spanish companies in the country for the alleged links of corruption between construction and energy companies with previous governments.
“We have good relations in Spain, sometimes not as we would like, with misunderstandings, but I aspire to fully reestablish good relations with Spain,” he reiterated this Saturday.
The president has raised the claim in 2021, when his Government commemorates 500 years of indigenous resistance, as he has renamed the anniversary of the conquest, in addition to the 200 years of the consummation of independence.
Tension increased with last week’s meeting between Santiago Abascal, leader of the far-right Spanish VOX party, and Mexican senators from the opposition National Action Party (PAN), who signed an “anti-communist” pact known as the Madrid Charter.
“Spain is one of the countries with the most investment in Mexico and political relations that have always been had, only interrupted during the Franco regime, which we hope will no longer continue to sprout,” López Obrador said this Saturday.
Before these statements, the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Relations (SRE) announced that López Obrador proposed the current governor of Sinaloa, who leaves office in November, as the new Mexican ambassador to Spain after the recent controversies in that diplomatic headquarters.
