Lusa - Business News - Portugal: 'Spain must take Portugal more seriously, Iberian summits must get '




Lisbon, Oct.26,2020 (Lusa)- The Secretary General of the Atlantic Axis said on Monday that Iberian summits must have "practical results" and stop being a "meeting of friends for lunch", arguing that "Spain must take Portugal more seriously".
"Spain has to take Portugal more seriously. Iberian summits cannot be a meeting of friends for lunch. This year's summit had some prospect of results only because of the document presented by Prime Minister António Costa on cross-border cooperation," said Xoan Mao.
The governments of Portugal and Spain this month approved the "Common Strategy for Cross-Border Development" at the 31st Luso-Spanish Summit in Guarda.
Among the measures set out in the document is the creation of the cross-border worker, to facilitate the movement of these citizens without the constraints of the closing of borders imposed at the start of the pandemic, and the cross-border 112 emergency phone number which will allow the user access to the nearest emergency services, be they Portuguese or Spanish.
Speaking as secretary general of the cross-border association, as the Axis did not take a position on the issue, Xoan Mao said that it was "crucial to rethink relations between Spain and Portugal".
"The summits must have practical results. Both Portugal and Spain, in this case mainly Spain, have to understand that when two countries share the longest and most stable border in Europe, they have to develop a double diplomacy. On the one hand, diplomacy between the capitals of the two countries. On the other hand, a diplomacy of proximity, of the people who have a common life, every day, on the border", he specified.
In his view, "local diplomacy must involve the regions, town councils, the Intermunicipal Communities (CIM) and associations of municipalities, such as the Atlantic Axis".
"The participation does not consist of receiving a phone call, at short notice, from the Prime Minister's office to invite, at random, some entities and others not, to go to a meeting to clap their hands", he said.
According to Xoan Mao, this was what happened at the last Iberian summit, held this month in the Guarda.
"That is what some entities were invited to. To hear what ministers were saying at a press conference, to take a photograph and to clap their hands. This is not a real participation in border problems," he said.
For Xoan Mao, "summits are the exclusive competence of prime ministers", but they should include "another differentiated party, listening to the opinion of those who live and feel the border".
"He noted that "the great Iberian issues are still on the table", awaiting decisions.
He pointed to the "reform of the bilateral treaty, the creation of a joint fire-fighting unit, joint health resources", the latter already operating between Spain and France.
"These matters are never progressed at Iberian summits. The key issue now is passenger and freight rail links and no progress has been made either, while with France and Italy these matters are progressing", he regretted.
