A Trip to Warmer Lands (Spain - Czech Slavia Summit)
15th February 2022
Another day began in the capital city of the Kingdom of Spain, Madrid. It was a sunny day, with no clouds in the sky and with the Saharian dust threatening to ruin it, as it was making its entrance through Andalusia and the southern regions of Spain. However, that day had to be perfect, as Aguilar would be welcoming to the Palacio de la Moncloa his first international guest of the year, an award that would be received by the President of Czech Slavia, Albina Reiserová, a very good friend of Jesús Aguilar.
Preparations were being made in Moncloa when the President arrived at the Consejo de Ministros building, where the summit would just start, but there were more plans designed for this very important event. Czech Slavia was a very valuable partner for Spain, as they provided the country alongside Lusitania & Vettonia with Rare Earth Metals. It was a hard deal to achieve, as Jesús Aguilar needed to betray some of his former opposition friends, but in the end, he got what he wanted and him and Albina became good friends. Both had in common a deep friendship with the Archbishop of Inquista, Mikaela Kligenberg, and the Emperor of Inimicus, Artabanos.
That day, the Spanish President had several goals on mind, including strengthening the bilateral relationship between his nation and Czech Slavia, but he wanted to meet Reiserová a little bit more. Jesús entered the building to personally make the final checks, heading directly to the Salón Tapiès, where the press would see them both for the last time, unless a press conference took place later on. He saw that the flowers with the Spanish and Czech flags, and then a member of the staff entered the room: "Oh, Mr. President, I didn't expect you to be here! I'll come back later", he said. The President rapidly turned around and answered: "No no, please, come in. I was just checking everything was alright!". The member of the staff entered the room, impressed by the presence of the Head of the Government.
The Czech President for Life has finally stepped out of her plane. Exhausted, as she didn't get much sleep the previous night, due to reading. At least the sun felt pleasant in Spain on February, much more pleasant than in Czech Slavia. She was followed out by the Minister of Culture Karel Šín, who under the guise of deepening the cultural ties between Spain and Czech Slavia wished to visit the director of "Jersey" and show him, that "tiger blood" have gotten Šín to the government while the director kept directing sitcoms. Both politicians fixed their sun glasses and stepped into cars that have been prepared for them, to go to meet the Spanish President.
When the cars brought them to Palacio de la Moncloa they stepped out and Reiserová approached Aguilar with her hand extended, "Jesús, so nice to meet you!" as she shook his hand she leaned closer "What sort of issues are you getting yourself into again? You know, not a day passes that I don't have to read about your disputes surrounding the Straits. I thought you solved that issue?". She lent back and moved her head to face Šín, before bringing it back to face Aguilar, "I believe you haven't met with our Minister of Culture, have you?" she smiled at her Spanish counterpart.
