From November 12 to 14 the king and queen of Spain, Felipe VI and Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, will arrive in Lima on an official visit as part of their diplomatic agenda.
According to information from El País, the king will then continue without his wife to Guatemala to participate in the XXVI Ibero-American Summit.
During the royals’ visit in Lima they will hold several meetings with the president of Peru, Martín Vizcarra, and the first lady, Maribel Díaz Cabello, at the Presidential Palace. They will also sign several agreements and make a joint declaration.
“The kings will visit the Congress of the Republic, the seat of the Judicial Power and the Municipality of Lima. They will also participate in a business event, visit a Repsol refinery outside Lima and hold various audiences and a meeting with the Spanish residents of this country”, El País informed on Tuesday.
