White House Wants Catalonia and Spain to Negotiate

White House Wants Catalonia and Spain to Negotiate

But Mr Puigdemont in his declaration to parliament called for Catalonia's independence to be suspended pending negotiations with Madrid.

Following his declaration to Parliament, Puigdemont and his allies signed an Independence declaration outside the chamber, but its legal validity was unclear.

Rajoy called an emergency meeting after Catalonia's President Carles Puigdemont announced Tuesday that he had accepted the mandate for "Catalonia to become an independent state" following a banned referendum earlier this month.

Italy does not recognize Catalonia's unilaterally proclaimed independence and believes that Spain's territorial integrity must be preserved, Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano said on Tuesday evening.

We've not yet scheduled anything for next year", Michael Anton, a spokesman for the National Security Council, told The Hill . A USA diplomatic source told The Telegraph: "There are plenty of chances to get the President over here".

At a joint appearance with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy that day, Trump said he "think [s] Spain is a great country and it should be united".

"I propose suspending the effects of the declaration of independence to undertake talks in the coming weeks without which it is not possible to reach an agreed solution". "My arrest would be unjustified and a mistake; this is not the moment to send people with whom you have political discrepancies to prison."Puigdemont said it was an important time for both sides to enter into dialogue."We are at a point where the most important thing that there is no previous condition to sit down and talk, to accept that we have to talk, we need to talk in the right conditions", he said".

But Spain's political establishment rounded on Puigdemont following his declaration, and support among separatists in Catalonia was mixed.

Spain has been in turmoil since a disputed referendum on October 1 which was declared invalid by the country's Constitutional Court.

At stake is the future of a region of 7.5 million people, one of Spain's economic powerhouses, whose drive to break away has raised concern for stability in the European Union.

Mr Rajoy said his government had asked the regional government to clarify whether or not it had declared independence.

Ahead of Puigdemont's address on Tuesday, influential figures including Barcelona's Mayor Ada Colau and European Council President Donald Tusk had urged him to step back from declaring independence.

The Catalan government said 90 percent of those who voted backed independence but turnout was only 43 percent as many opponents of independence stayed at home.
