At present there is no visit to Dublin by my Spanish counterpart scheduled for the early months of 2020. However, I was delighted to attend the Asia Europe Meeting of Foreign Ministers which was hosted by the Spanish Foreign Ministry in Madrid earlier this week.

Spain is a greatly valued partner for Ireland. I will continue to engage closely with my Spanish and other EU counterparts both bilaterally and at EU level throughout the coming year.
