Re­ac­tion: Need for ‘di­a­logue’

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - WORLD NEWS -

The Span­ish govern­ment can­not ig­nore the “very sig­nif­i­cant ex­pres­sion of sup­port for in­de­pen­dence” demon­strated by Cat­alo­nia’s un­of­fi­cial ref­er­en­dum, Scot­land’s First Min­is­ter has said.

Ni­cola Stur­geon said a “di­a­logue” be­tween the sides was needed as she con­demned the vi­o­lence.

She stopped short of sug­gest­ing an agree­ment on an­other bal­lot, but said “in any democ­racy there has to be a le­gal way for peo­ple to ex­press their view”.
