The parliamentary spokesman for the PSOE, Héctor Gómez, has lashed out this Thursday against the leader of the opposition, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, whom he has labeled an "arsonist" for his criticism of the Government on Algeria. All this after the Algerian authorities have paralyzed the friendship treaty with Spain in the last twenty-four hours and also prohibited commercial operations with our country. The president of the PP, in a public act also this Thursday, has asked the Government of Algeria to "distinguish between the Government of Spain and the Spanish people" and therefore not "make citizens pay" for them, he said, " effects of an improvised policy”, in reference to Pedro Sánchez's turn on relations with Morocco.
After hearing these statements, the spokesman for the Socialist Group, Héctor Gómez, has summoned the press in the Congress of Deputies to attack Feijóo for considering that these statements show that he lacks a "sense of state." "I would like to define Núñez Feijóo as an arsonist for the stability of our country and also in the field of international relations", he pointed out, while, in line with the Government, he underlined what the European Commission said about Algeria and Spain, which sees an "extremely worrying" situation, highlighting that "Brussels has conveyed the will to reverse this situation."
For Gómez, all this occurs due to the will of the Spanish Executive to "establish a new framework of relations with Morocco and, obviously, put an end to a situation of forty-six years of anomaly in the Sahara." The socialist spokesman considers that with these statements Feijóo intends to "deteriorate the image of Spain abroad", as well as "address another government speaking of the non-representativeness of the Government of Spain." All of this, in his opinion, "demonstrates Mr. Feijóo's lack of will to have a sense of state in the remainder of the legislature."
