Great to have you with us.
President Moon became the first South Korean leader to make a state visit to Spain in 14 years, and he's also the first foreign leader to be greeted by Spain since the pandemic outbreak. Could you first tell us the significance of the visit?
President Moon is holding summit talks with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez as we speak. What do you think the key takeaways will be from the summit?
Expanding South Korea-Spain economic partnership is high on the agenda as President Moon took part in the 'green digital business forum' earlier in the day where he highlighted the need for low-carbon and digital economic cooperation between the two countries.
What kind of business deals are we expecting from the two sides?
President Moon is also scheduled to join an annual business leaders' forum in Barcelona. Which areas can we expect further boost in bilateral economic partnership can we expect?
President Moon, during a welcoming dinner hosted by King Felipe VI, said Korea hopes for Spain's cooperation in shared goals like tackling climate change and the 4th Industrial Revolution. How do you assess the level of bilateral cooperation in areas that are now deemed critical to national security, such as climate change and various science and technology industries?
President Moon's state visit to Spain comes on the heels of the G7 Summit where a confrontational declaration was issued against Russia and China. But there were some cracks when trying to find a common ground on some big issues. Where does Spain stand in Washington's push to form a united western front against Russia and China?
