 EU Commission backs efforts to ensure unity in Spain

BRUSSELS, 11 Oct. - (ANA) - The European Commission said on Wednesday it supported efforts to promote unity in Spain after Catalan moves to declare independence.
Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont made a symbolic declaration of independence from Spain late on Tuesday but then immediately suspended it to allow for talks with the Madrid government.
“The Commission is following closely the situation in Spain and reiterates its earlier call for full respect of the Spanish constitutional order,” Commission Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis told a news conference, confirming the EU executive had discussed the crisis briefly at its weekly meeting.
“We are supporting efforts to overcome division and fragmentation, to ensure unity and respect of the Spanish constitution,” he added.
