Spain Supports China and the Olympics

Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos Sunday reaffirmed the support of the Spanish government for the Olympic Games in Beijing and said he believed the event will be "a great success."

Boycotting the Olympic Games goes against the spirit of concord of the games, Moratinos told a joint press conference with visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi after their talks. Moratinos said an official Spanish delegation will attend the opening ceremony of the games on Aug. 8. Yang thanked Spain's support for the Olympic Games and said he is against politicizing the event. Yang also thanked Spain for the aid and sympathy it offered following the earthquake in southwest China, saying it showed the "deep feeling of friendship" between the two governments and peoples.

Yang is on a European tour and will also visit Slovenia, which holds the current rotating presidency of the European Union (EU), Italy and EU headquarters in Brussels. During his stay in Spain, Yang will also meet with King Juan Carlos I and Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero. Source
