"It is an honor for Puerto Rico to receive the King and Queen of Spain for this Congress of great importance for Spanish speakers', said Governor Garcia Padilla.
The Puerto Rican leader said that the visit of King Felipe VI 'symbolizes the unbreakable union of our peoples and all Latin American brothers, who share with Spain culture, language and history'.
