The President of the Government,
will travel to the United States next week for more than three days to attract investments with an agenda already closed without definitely requesting to see the president,
, or any member of the Administration of that country, according to Moncloa sources confirm.
In the Presidency of the Government they justify this displacement without attempting a longer and more organized contact with Biden than the momentary and punctual one that he maintained through the corridors of the last NATO summit, because he has wanted to focus on US investors on a primarily economic trip. In Moncloa they assure that they have limited themselves to informing the US Embassy in Madrid about the details of the trip. Going to the US for several days without stepping on the White House contrasts with Sánchez's words on June 14 when he described his brief talk with Biden as a first contact that would have continuity.

continue collaborating, working and staying in touch
", he said then. In Moncloa they assure that the relationship continues to be very close, but that it is not the time yet to try a meeting with the US president.
