MADRID, Oct 15 (Reuters) - The Spanish government would issue debt to compensate for any potential delay in the approval and disbursement of EU rescue funds, which represent a risk for the economic recovery, Economy Minister Nadia Calvino told reporters on Thursday.
Spain is counting on the funds to launch a recovery plan as early as January 2021, Calvino had said earlier this week.
