Madrid, Spain, Feb 20, 2012 / 16:05 pm
Spain's former ambassador to the Holy See, Paco Vazquez, dismissed a proposal by Socialist Party leader Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba to revise the country's accords with the Vatican.
Vazquez told the Onda Cero radio network that such an idea has already been shelved and “makes no sense in present-day Spain,” reported Europa Press.
“This is not even an issue up for debate in any of our neighboring countries,” he said.
Vasquez's remarks come as the country's current Socialist Party has advocated for a more stringent and less amicable concordant or agreement with the Holy See that could effect diplomacy between the two entities.
