The Spanish Government has responded to the latest letter from the President of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, once again denying him a meeting with the Spanish president, Pedro Sánchez, “in the coming weeks” in the Palau de la Generalitat to speak about “the terms of the dialogue” and address the “exercise of the right to self-determination”. According to the socialist executive, it is not “the right time”.

This is in line, roughly with the statement from minister and spokesperson, Isabel Celaá, yesterday, about the possibility of a meeting between Sánchez and Torra this October. “It does not seem like this would be the most sensitive moment to decide a date for a possible meeting,” Celaá said.
