بحث و گفتگو درباره ديدار محمد خاتمي، رئيس جمهوري اسلامي، از اسپانيا همچنان موضوع روز مطبوعات اسپانيا است. عليرغم انتقاد بسياري از مطبوعات اين كشور از احکام اسلامى جداسازى زن و مرد و حذف ميهمانى هاى رسمى به دليل صرف مشروبات الکلى كه مقامات جمهورى اسلامى رعايت آنها را خواستار شده اند، برخي از مطبوعات اين كشور از تصميم دولت اسپانيا در رعايت اين موارد، حمايت كردند.
