Spain restarts dialogue with secessionist Catalans

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez met Wednesday with Catalonia’s President Pere Aragones in a resumption of talks aimed at resolving an ongoing crisis caused by the autonomous region’s separatist movement, said local sources.

Following the roughly two-hour meeting, the two leaders expressed optimism by recognizing that the meeting itself was an important development to find a solution to the problem Spain has faced since the constitutional crisis of 1978, the Spanish daily El Pais reported.

While Sanchez insisted that the most important thing now is to work “without haste and deadlines," Aragones said "we need progress beyond deadlines," the newspaper said.
