MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Spain will not offer concessions to Catalonian independence supporters, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said on Monday.
“#Catalonia We act firmly and proportionally. National sovereignty and unity of Spain are not for trade,” Rajoy posted on his Twitter page.
According to a poll published Friday, supporters of Catalonian independence are losing strength. 48 percent of respondents are against independence from Spain, while only 44.1 percent of the voters would support the move.
Following the referendum, Catalan authorities scheduled snap regional elections for September 27, 2015, which could become yet another attempt in the region to gain independence from Spain.
