brussels - The Belgian and Luxembourg premiers call Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy into a 'political dialogue' with Catalonia. That they said on arrival for the EU summit in Brussels. Premier Mark Rutte did not join both liberal colleagues. 'This is a matter between the Spanish government and a Spanish region.'
Rutte finds it 'inappropriate to say anything about it. '' It's only a role for the European Union if Spain asks for it. 'Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has asked for support from the European Union.
Premier Mariano Rajoy did not want to comment on the conflict about the Catalan independence wish on Thursday in Brussels. Without saying a word, the Spanish government leader entered the building of the European Council. He convened his cabinet for Saturday and threatened to lift the Catalan self-government. This would bring the region back to Madrid.
