"Allow me, first of all, to give you the warmest and most cordial welcome today at this Royal Palace of Madrid. The Queen and I are deeply happy to finally receive you in Spain," King Felipe said. "The pandemic, which has caused so much pain and has truncated so many plans, both in Colombia and in our country, has forced us to postpone a visit that we are deeply happy to be able to resume, now that circumstances permit. It is an honor and a pleasure for us to welcome the friend — the friends of Spain — and the highest representative of the sister nation of Colombia, with which so many ties unite us."
