Aragon’s warned in Madrid that neither Catalonia nor the Government could “missed the historic opportunity” of dialogue

“Neither Catalonia nor the State Government can miss the historic opportunity that dialogue offers.” That is one of the main ideas that the president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, wants to emphasize this Wednesday evening at his conference in Madrid, at Club Siglo XXI. “There will hardly be a second chance if there is no capacity to resolve the conflict now through the ballot box,” the Catalan chief executive warned the coexistent coalition of Moncloa, PSOE and United We Can.

The president’s words come after the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, indicated this week in an interview that the next dialogue table meeting would not take place in the next few weeks, as previously indicated. “Speculating, playing with time, and postponing the meeting do not help the negotiation process, it only contributes to the emergence of doubts,” added Aragon later, who in turn predicted that negotiations with countries on territorial conflicts would not be easy at all. .

“This is not the time for speculation, this is the time to offer certainty to the public. I am not going to talk about the dates, the debates of the last few days, but about the proposals,” Aragon said later, in line with what was disclosed. by his party these days, more concerned with the fact that there is content on the table than on the calendar. “Only with the proposals on the table will it be seen that the negotiations were genuine and progressing, and that the agreements that made this process possible are still in effect,” he stressed. “We all know that with political will anything is possible,” he later said.

“It is time to build an agreement between the institutions of the State and the institutions of Catalonia to resolve the political conflict,” the head of Government stressed at the start of his speech, calling on the central government for “creative and imaginative” solutions to allow the vote. “The referendum is necessary, whoever defends Catalonia is part of Spain, the State, must dare to win it democratically. Coercion does not lead to any victory. Dare to win as well as lose,” Aragon snapped at the central government.
