On February 9, AMLO spoke of pausing relations with Spain during his customary press conference.
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador proposed a “pause” in relations between Mexico and Spain, but made it clear that it is a “comment” and not something that he will request in a “formal” way.
López Obrador said that both countries “have to give each other time” to respect each other and that the Spanish government does not see Mexico as a land of conquest, “we do want to have good relations, but we do not want them to rob us.” Let us remember, for example, that José María Aznar confirms that Spain will not kneel before Mexico.
AMLO spoke of pausing relations with Spain
“Now it’s not a good relationship and I would like it to take us until it normalizes, to take a break that I think will be convenient for us Mexicans and Spaniards, of course the people of Mexico and the people of Spain,” said AMLO.
But he ruled on “Take a break in relationships because it was a collusion abovean economic and political promiscuity at the top of the governments of Mexico and Spain, like three six-year terms in a row and Mexico got the worst of it, they looted us”.

But the president hinted that relations between the two countries might not normalize until the end of his six-year term, saying: “It is better to give us some time, a pause. And maybe when the government changes, relations will be reestablished and I wish, when I’m not here, that they wouldn’t be like before”.
“Just as the Spaniards do not want them to come from any country to rob them, because we do not want them either,” he said from the National Palace when AMLO spoke of pausing relations with Spain.
AMLO is not against the people of Spain
The President of Mexico made it clear that he is referring to businessmen and not to the people of Spain, “it is a people that deserves all our respect, a hard-working, extraordinary people, a good people.”
It was on the instructions of López Obrador that the director of Pemex, Octavio Romero Oropeza, recounted stories of Spanish companies doing business in Mexico, recalling how the Mexican government rescued some shipyards in Spain that were bankrupt.
Finally, Romero Oropeza, reported on a contract that Pemex had with a company that had built a gas pipeline from Poza Rica to the Tula refinery, which had never transported “any gas.”
“By this time, 5 years had passed since the pipeline had been built. It was a payment of 4.2 million dollars, around 100 million pesos per month, which they were paid for 5 years for transporting absolutely nothing”.
Given these scenarios, AMLO spoke of pausing relations with Spain, because he does not want Mexico to be robbed.
