Spanish relations are still "paused," according to the president of Mexico

Despite lawmakers removing Pedro Castillo from office last week for attempting to dissolve Congress ahead of a scheduled impeachment vote, López Obrador claimed Mexico still recognizes Castillo as the president of Peru.
The two embraced and discussed new cooperation during the meeting of the Spain-Mexico Bilateral Commission on Thursday, when Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary ...
...Marcelo Ebrard met with his Spanish counterpart José Manuel Albares. The two countries' bilateral relations are about to be relaunched, Ebrard said.
The pause continues, however, because there is no attitude of respect on their part, López Obrador argued in opposition to Ebrard early on Friday.
In a letter sent in 2020, López Obrador begged Spain to apologise for the brutality of its conquest of Mexico in 1521 and its subsequent centuries of colonial rule.
The president griped on Friday that the king of Spain, who is the head of state, ignored a respectful letter he sent to him and didn't even have the decency to respond.
They claimed that we owed them a debt of gratitude for coming to colonize us and then continuing the same smug attitude with the businesses.
According to the statement, the Spanish government vehemently disagrees with the president of Mexico's remarks regarding His Majesty the King, Spanish businesses, and Spanish political organizations.
After a productive Bilateral Commission that produced so many tangible results, these assertions are incomprehensible.
The Catholic Church, the Spanish monarchy, and the Mexican government should apologize publicly for the offensive atrocities that Indigenous people endured, Mexico 2020 wrote.

...anniversary of the 1519–1521 conquest, which claimed the lives of a significant portion of the country's pre-Hispanic population.
Josep Borrell, Spain's then-foreign minister, declared that his nation would not extend the apologizes that had been requested.
