Mexico’s new left wind president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is asking King Felipe to apologize for Spain’s conquest of Mexico.
The president made the request in a letter to His Majesty through the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
López Obrador, who has good relations with Spain, says an apology is the only way to gain true reconciliation. He send the Pope a similar missive.
The Spanish government, according to El Pais, is not at all thrilled by the letter to the King.
