The Catalan leadership signed a declaration of independence


Carles Puigdemont, the Catalan leader, and other regional politicians signed a document declaring Catalonia's independence from Spain on Tuesday night, but suspended its implementation as they pushed for talks with Madrid, APA reports quoting the Guardian.

 

"Catalonia restores today its full sovereignty," says the document, called "declaration of the representatives of Catalonia". It was unclear if the document would have any legal value.

 

"We call on all states and international organisations to recognise the Catalan republic as an independent and sovereign state. We call on the Catalan government to take all necessary measures to make possible and fully effective this declaration of independence and the measures contained in the transition law that founds the republic."
