France not To Recognize Catalan Declaration
Local Editor

European Affairs Minister Nathalie Loiseau said Monday that France will not recognize Catalonia if the Spanish region unilaterally declares independence.

"If there were to be a declaration of independence, it would be unilateral, and it would not be recognized," Loiseau said on CNews television.

Catalonia, which has its own language and culture and is led by a pro-independence regional government, held a referendum on Oct. 1 over secession in defiance of Spain's constitutional court, which had declared the vote illegal.

"Catalonia cannot be defined by the vote organized by the independence movement just over a week ago," the French junior minister said. "This crisis needs to be resolved through dialogue at all levels of Spanish politics."

He further added: "A hasty decision to recognize independence following such a unilateral declaration would amount to fleeing France's responsibilities."

"If independence were to be recognized - which is not something that's being discussed - the most immediate consequence would be that [Catalonia] automatically left the European Union."
