The Government of the Generalitat does not know the details of the summit between Spain and France that will take place in Barcelona on January 19 to sign a Treaty of Friendship and Enhanced Cooperation. “There are no relevant details. There are 16 days left, if there is something relevant, we will tell you," said the spokeswoman for the Catalan Executive, Patrícia Plaja, this Tuesday, when asked about the role that the Catalan president, Pere Aragonès, may have at the summit, while host.

"That the process has ended, the president can repeat it as many times as he wants, but the conflict is still more in force than ever," the spokeswoman has settled, who has asked the central government to "be brave" and "let it be called the referendum”.
