I encourage Spaniards to start planning their holidays now and take advantage of the wonders that our country has to offer," he said. "Spain needs tourism, and tourism needs security. Safety at origin and safety at destination. That is why we will guarantee that tourists will not run any risks and that they will not bring risks to our country either."
Sports to return: Sanchez also said La Liga will return from the week of June 8."
