The escalation and lack of apology are leading the Spanish government to consider extending this and bringing it to the attention of the European Union,” said sources close to the matter.

Meanwhile, Sánchez responded to the remarks made by the Argentine president, criticizing him for not living up to the dignity of his office. During his participation in the CREO economic forum, the leader of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) demanded an apology from Milei and asserted that he is “fully aware that the person who spoke yesterday did not speak on behalf of the great Argentine people.”

President Javier Milei, in turn, launched an attack on Spanish President Pedro Sánchez and his wife, Begoña Gómez, whom he described as “corrupt.”

“They don’t know what kind of society and country socialism can produce and what kind of people entrenched in power and levels of abuse it can generate. Even if he has a corrupt wife, he hesitates and takes five days to think about it,” Milei said on Sunday during his speech at the Vox event at the Palacio de Vistalegre “Europa Viva 24.”
