Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi began his first official trip to Spain with a private visit to a luxury country resort hotel, after arriving from France, where he sealed business deals worth billions of euros. Gadhafi and a retinue numbering at least 200 arrived Saturday at Seville airport from France aboard three aircraft and sped away in dozens of cars to the secluded Hacienda La Boticaria hotel, 18 kilometers (11 miles) southeast of the Andalusian capital. During the four-day visit, Gadhafi is expected to meet Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, King Juan Carlos and former Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar among other senior officials. His official meetings are planned to start Monday. Speaking to journalists, Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos noted Spain's important economic interests in Libya, especially in the energy sector.
