The secretary general of the Canary Coalition and senator for the Canary Islands, Fernando Clavijo, has pointed out that yesterday’s visit by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, José Manuel Albares, has been “superfluous” and lacks explanations, since although he considers that it was “an opportunity”, he doubts that it was taken advantage of because “what they said outside was nothing”.

As he has expressed, “for what he said, the visit could have been spared”.

As Clavijo lamented, “he did not give any explanation about the change in position of the Government of Spain in relation to the Sahara, nor about the agreements with Morocco and he continues to repeat a lie that, no matter how many times it is repeated, it will not be true”, about “arrivals falling from small boats to the islands«.

He recalled that in the first 15 days of May we are talking about 1,000 and that is that “they have risen, although it has fallen in Ceuta and Melilla, which may be the priority of the Government of Spain”.

What he considers “clear” is that the arrivals of migrants have not been reduced to the Canary Islands as a result of the shift in Pedro Sánchez’s policy, because “we continue to mourn the loss of life in that great mass grave that the sea has become that separates the Canary Islands from Africa.

He stressed that “he did not give any explanation as to why he did not defend that the Canary Islands as RUP be outside the 15% minimum taxation, nor why it has not been defended that the Canary Islands are outside the Green Tax in their connections with foreign countries. , with the peninsula and between islands«.

Clavijo has pointed out that “I did not hear a single claim or demand from the Government of the Canary Islands regarding the defense of the legitimate rights of the Canary Islands” and in his opinion that is just one more example of the tone of the Government of the Canary Islands, which has become In recent years, it is a committee for the reception and protocol of ministers«.

The interests of the Canary Islands is something that “Spain should consider if it considers us part” of the country, he claimed. For Clavijo, the visit and the conclusions of Minister Albares’ passage have been “completely superfluous”.
