Spanish and Catalan governments to hold formal talks as Aragonès warns of another referendum

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Catalan regional president Pere Aragonès have announced that discussions between the two governments will begin again in the third week of September in Barcelona.

During a meeting between both in the Moncloa yesterday, the Catalan regional leader pressed for amnesty for those involved in the disputed referendum and declaration of independence, whilst the Government has said that those who remain in exile must first face accountability for their actions.

In a press conference after the meeting, both sides admitted there were difficult discussions to be held, with Aragonès stating he would not block any plans to hold another independence referendum in the region.
