US vice-president-elect Joe Biden will visit Spain to improve bilateral relations that deteriorated during the presidency of George W Bush, the daily El Pais reported Tuesday.
The visit was agreed on Monday during a telephone conversation between Biden and Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who got in touch with each other to discuss the results of Saturday's economic summit in Washington, reported dpa.
Biden was expected in Madrid soon after taking office.
US president-elect Barack Obama and Zapatero have agreed to open a new era in bilateral relations which cooled after Zapatero withdrew Spanish troops from Iraq following his election victory in 2004.
Biden told Zapatero that the Obama administration would emphasize the importance of "multilateralism" in foreign policy, Spanish government sources were quoted as saying.
