China Daily | Updated: 2024-05-21 09:56

Spain recalled its ambassador to Buenos Aires for consultations on Sunday after Argentina's President Javier Milei made derogatory comments about Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez's wife during a far-right rally in Madrid.

Milei had called Sanchez's wife Begona Gomez "corrupt" during a rally in Madrid organized by the far-right Vox party and attended by many of its international allies. Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Albares said he expected an apology from Milei.

Milei would not apologize, his spokesperson said in an interview with an Argentine TV channel later on Sunday. Spanish officials should retract insults they have made against him, he added.
