Calls for ‘cease­fire’

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

A MEM­BER of Cat­alo­nia’s sep­a­ratist-led gov­ern­ment has called for a “cease­fire” with Spain to de­crease ten­sions af­ter a dis­puted ref­er­en­dum on in­de­pen­dence by the pros­per­ous re­gion.

Santi Vila, Cat­alo­nia’s re­gional chief for busi­ness, told Cadena SER Ra­dio he is push­ing for “a new op­por­tu­nity for di­a­logue” un­der “a cease­fire” with Span­ish au­thor­i­ties.

Mr Vila said he is against Cat­alo­nia uni­lat­er­ally declar­ing in­de­pen­dence at the mo­ment and wants to see a com­mit­tee of ex­perts from both sides work­ing to­wards a so­lu­tion to the cri­sis.
