Sunday, 29 january 2017 | CNA
Brussels (CNA).- The European Union has a role to play in resolving the current stalemate in Catalonia, according to some of the MEPs that attended on Tuesday the Catalan President’s talk in the European Parliament. “This is a European issue, I have no doubt about that.

The Catalan President, Carles Puigdemont, urged Europe to “not look the other way” and be “part of the solution” to the Catalan question during his speech in Brussels.
