KING ENSURES THAT CATALONIA WILL BE AN ESSENTIAL PART IN SPAIN IN THE 21ST CENTURY IN THE CEREMONY OF THE PRINCESS OF ASTURIAS AWARDS

Oviedo (Spain) / Sergio Hernández – King Felipe VI has ensured that Catalonia “is and will be an essential part of Spain in the 21st century”, whose “legitimate democratic institutions” will resolve the “unacceptable attempt to secede” in accordance with the Constitution and in accordance with the values and principles of parliamentary democracy.

Felipe VI reaffirmed the strength of the State in the face of the independence challenge during his speech in the ceremony of Princess of Asturias Awards held at the Campoamor Theater in Oviedo.

“Spain has to face an unacceptable attempt at secession in a part of its national territory and will resolve it through its legitimate democratic institutions in accordance with our Constitution and in accordance with the values and principles of parliamentary democracy in which we live for 39 years.”(Felipe VI)

This was the first intervention of the Head of State from the extraordinary message he addressed to the Spaniards on October 3, two days after the illegal vote, and comes on the eve of the government’s approval of the activation of Article 155 to stop the project of rupture in Catalonia.

The King spoke in the presence of the President of the Government, Mariano Rajoy, and the three highest authorities, the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Council Donald Tusk and the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, who have won Prize for Concord awarded to the European Union (EU).

These leaders of the European institutions have transmitted a clear message of support for Spanish democracy and the rule of law in the face of the pro-independence challenge of Catalonia during the ceremony.

The Italian Antonio Tajani has done it in Spanish, language that he’s fluent:

“And of course, the treaties can be changed. The Treaty of Rome was amended several times. It has become the Treaty of Lisbon. But, as long as the law is not changed, its respect is not an option is an obligation.”

In this edition, Princess of Asturias Awards have praised the work of those who promote solidarity, harmony and culture in building a common future in times of uncertainty. (October 20, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
