Catalonia suspends declaration of independence from Spain


The Catalan government has said it is suspending its declaration of independence from Spain and wants to de-escalate the tension in the country, the Independent reported.

Premier Carles Puigdemont made the announcement in a highly-anticipated speech to the regional parliament in Barcelona where he said he would seek to enter into negotiations with the Spanish government to move the case for independence forward.

The Catalan leader maintained the legality of the October 1 referendum in Catalonia, and said Catalans had “won their right to become an independent country” but said he will first seek to open a dialogue with Madrid.

It was a wise step. The EU has a problem now. Where does it go? The Bible says: "At the appointed time [the king of the north] will return back." (Daniel 11:29) The return of Russia in this context also means the breakup of the European Union and NATO. Many countries of the former Eastern block will reconcile with Russia. Such is the plan of God.
