Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos joins the Riz Khan show from Madrid. A member of the Socialist Workers' Party, Mr. Moratinos also serves in Spain's Congress where he represents Cordoba and as Chairman in Office for the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.

Spain's increasing strength as a member of the European Union is being paralleled by its growing role as both a regional and international political player.

Most recently it has found itself engaging more actively with nations in North Africa – a region known as the Maghreb and Libya's leader, Muammar Qadafi, is one of those finding opportunities in Spain's growing overseas portfolio.

On the next Riz Khan show we look at how Spain is dealing with its African neighbours, as well as handing domestic issues with international roots, such as immigration.
