"We categorically do not support the EU style and agenda in relation to not only Russia but other countries too. We are categorically against signing free trade deals with the United States and Canada," Sol Sanchez told RIA Novosti.
The politician made the statement ahead of the parliamentary elections in Spain, scheduled for Sunday.
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a proposed free-trade deal between the European Union and the United States. The agreement which has been criticized for its unusual secrecy, is opposed by many Europeans who claim that the pact would undermine standards and regulations on environmental protection, health and safety, as well as workers’ rights, among other points.
The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is a similar agreement between the European Union and Canada.
Almost 3.3 million Europeans signed a petition against the two deals.
