Zelensky meets Prime Minister Sánchez and King Felipe in Spain

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in Madrid on Monday for his first official visit to Spain.

Zelenskiy was greeted by King Felipe VI upon landing at Madrid-Barajas airport and later met Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez.

The two leaders plan to sign a bilateral security treaty, the Spanish government website said. Zelensky is then expected to attend a royal reception.

Spanish media also reported later in the afternoon about a possible visit to the House of Representatives of the Spanish Parliament.

Zelensky’s visit to Spain and Portugal was originally scheduled for the middle of the month. However, the Ukrainian president was forced to postpone following the Russian offensive in the Kharkov region.

A new date for a visit to Portugal has not yet been officially announced, although there was speculation in Lisbon that Zelensky could fly from Spain to Portugal.
