The dialogue table inaugurated this Wednesday at the Moncloa will meet once a month at alternative meetings in Madrid and Barcelona, at the respective Government headquarters. However, the composition of the delegations will vary because working groups will be enabled and the presidents and vice-presidents will only be incorporated to ratify political agreements.
According to the joint communiqué, this first meeting has served to “establish the basis for dialogue, addressing some methodological aspects, and to verify the political nature of the conflict and that it requires a political solution.”
The joint communiqué of the delegations also indicates that any agreement adopted at the table will be formulated within the framework of “legal certainty”.
After the meeting, President Quim Torra has lamented that “we continue without having an answer to what we have exposed about the right to self-determination and amnesty.” Torra has appeared from the Moncloa, after a meeting of practically three hours in the Sala Tàpies, where the Spanish president receives institutional visits.
Normally, the regional presidents who visit the Moncloa appear in a smaller room, the ‘briefing’ room, but Torra has done so from the press room, where he stressed that the two sides have held an “honest and sincere” debate.
