From the meeting that will take place this Tuesday afternoon between the President of the Government, Pere Aragonès, and the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, the leader of the Catalan executive expects to leave “with a specific date” for the meeting of the dialogue table between both governments to bring positions closer to the Catalan conflict.
In addition to a day and time, the president hopes to specify “an agenda and content” to be discussed at this table as well as “a methodology to make it useful”, as indicated this Tuesday by the government spokeswoman, Patrícia Plaja, after the Executive Council.
Aragonès will not miss the opportunity to ask again, this time from Moncloa, the end of the “repression” in Catalonia and will insist on making possible an agreed referendum of self-determination and the “amnesty” for all people “retaliated” by the State.

“We are not going to agree to anything but to negotiate face to face with the Spanish president,” Plaja said, insisting that this afternoon’s meeting will not be courtesy but “work.” “The president is not going to Madrid to take a photo, but neither is he going to avoid it”, he has specified, bearing in mind that “the starting point is two very distant positions,” he added.
“We must reestablish the bases of the return to dialogue as equals,” Plaja reiterated, within a meeting that will touch on other important issues at an economic and social level, such as the management of European recovery funds or a “solution” to the “repression” of the Court of Auditors against the leaders of process to which it requires the payment of 5.4 million euros.
