Pedro Sánchez and Yolanda Díaz meet to “strengthen the coalition” of PSOE and United We Can

Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and Second Vice President Yolanda Díaz held a meeting on Monday, teams from both sides said. In identical statements, both of them considered that “the meeting was very positive and fruitful and served to strengthen the coalition”. “The Spanish government is aware of the great challenges that await the country, and we intend to continue working hand in hand, starting with the general state budget negotiations,” they said in a statement.

However, the president insists that it is in the interest of the progressive electorate that the PSOE and United We Can keep the agreement until the end.

“It is good that the government comes together at the end of the legislature. This is a good sign for the future, because it means that the two left-wing forces understand each other,” he explained in an informal conversation with journalists accompanying him on a tour of the Western Balkans, which he made in support of those countries’ entry.
