Tuesday 7 August 2018

Pedro Sánchez and Angela Merkel will go over the main issues on the bilateral and European agenda, with a particular focus on migration, an issue on which they share a common approach.

They will also deal with the reform of economic and monetary union, in which the President of the Government wishes to highlight the need to take into account the social pillar and the directives on quality employment.

Finally, both leaders will review the recent NATO summit and talk about European defence. It will be a weekend of work arranged by the head of the Spanish government, confirming the excellent relationship between the two leaders.

Over the weekend, Angela Merkel will also be able to explore the natural beauty of Doñana National Park and see the work being done there to protect and recover threatened species, such as the Iberian lynx.
