Catalan delegation in Rome reopened
Foreign action Minister pledges “more ambition” following office being closed due to Spain’s direct rule
The Catalan foreign action Ministry continues reopening the country’s delegations abroad closed down by Spain during the period of direct rule, once again inaugurating the office in Rome on Monday October 29.
Following spots in Berlin and London, the Italian branch was reopened by the foreign action minister, Ernest Maragall. During the act, Maragall pledged “more ambition” following the shutdown seen during the Spanish implementation of Article 155 of the Constitution.
Maragall also explained that his project is to have again a dozen such offices open in the coming months, as well as expanding the network to other regions such as the Maghreb and Asia. This, despite Spain’s challenging their reopening in court in September, arguing the Catalan government had not followed all the legal steps required.
