VHereditary trade of blows between Spain and Argentina: After a Spanish minister made drug accusations in opposition to Argentina's President Javier Milei, his workplace launched sharp counter-criticism. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez is plunging his nation into spoil, Milei's workplace mentioned on Saturday on the web service X. It was responding to allegations from the Spanish Transport Minister that Milei was on medication. Madrid “categorically rejected” the statements from Buenos Aires. These “do not” mirror bilateral relations, the Foreign Ministry mentioned.

The verbal trade was triggered by a press release by Spanish Transport Minister Oscar Puente on Friday at a convention of the social democratic PSOE. He mentioned he noticed the right-wing populist Milei “on television” through the Argentine presidential election marketing campaign. “I don’t know if it was before or after taking (…) substances.”

The response was swift: Milei's workplace launched a press release accusing Sánchez of harming “the middle class with his socialist policies that bring nothing but poverty and death.” In addition, the socialist is endangering the “unity” of Spain by way of his leniency in direction of separatists. Sánchez has “more important problems,” defined Milei’s workplace, apparently with a view to corruption allegations in opposition to Sánchez’s spouse.
