Spanish Prime Minister pays sixth visit to La Palma

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, is on his way back to La Palma today, making it the sixth time he visits since the Cumbre Vieja volcano first erupted nearly seven weeks ago.

After holding meetings with the Scientific Committee and Pevolca, the country’s leader will appear in the media and later meet with representatives of the banana industry.

The last time the president traveled to the island was on October 23, when he announced additional support measures to cover the self-employed and to speed up the distribution of emergency aid to those affected.

In the photo, taken yesterday, you can see him meeting with Ecuador’s President Guillermo Lasso in Madrid. It’s a busy time!
