President Obama hosted a lunch in honour of King Juan Carlos that was attended by the State Secretary Hillary Clinton, Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs Miguel Angel Moratinos, US National Security Advisor General James L. Jones and the Head of the Household of His Majesty, Alberto Aza.

According to Minister Moratinos, the meeting between both leaders was “extremely cordial and very warm”. The White House said in a statement that King and President discussed the situation in the Middle East as well as important issues in Latin America and the Caribbean, including Cuba and ongoing relief efforts in Haiti.

King Juan Carlos’s visit is following an official visit that Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero made to the White House on October 13, 2009 to talk on mutual issues. Zapatero was also invited to attend on February 4, 2010 the National Prayer Breakfast in USA.
