On July 1, Spain as­sumed the si­x-­month pre­si­dency of the EU, and yes­ter­day, Sunday July 2, the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, met at La Moncloa with the Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, who has begun the si­x-­month pe­riod with a trip to Kiev. Sánchez reite­rated Europe’s sup­port for Ukraine and as­sured that Spain “will rise to the oc­ca­sion”.

In an institutional declaration, Sánchez reviewed the four priorities on the agenda during the Spanish presidency: reindustrialisation, diversification of trade relations with the outside world, ecological transition and circular economy.

Tomorrow the College of EU Commissioners, chaired by Ursula von der Leyen, will visit Madrid with the aim of making progress on the Migration and Asylum Pact – which is expected to be completed by the end of the year – on relations with China and on security and defence policies.
