Analysis: Catalonia's 'difficult balancing act'.

Press/Media: Other

Description

CATALAN President Carles Puigdemont did not declare independence and called for weeks of dialogue instead.

The tone was conciliatory, with respectful references to last Sunday’s pro-Spain demonstration in Barcelona. Puigdemont also recognized that many Catalans are concerned that several companies have moved their registered head offices out of Catalonia due to political uncertainty.

The content and tone of the message could contribute to de-escalate the political tension in Catalonia and Spain.
