Spain - Q&A - Regional elections in Catalonia (Dec. 21)


Q - The French government has always supported Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy in the Catalan conflict. Elections in Catalonia restored the majority to the pro-independence bloc and left the People’s Party in last place, its worst result ever. How is the French government reading these results? Would it be a good idea to revise their strategy?

R -
Our position is unwavering: France reiterates its confidence in Spanish democracy and its commitment to respecting the constitutional framework in Spain.
