The government of Spain until Monday demands from Catalonia an unequivocal answer to the question whether the declaration of independence is the proclamation of sovereignty. This is reported by the Reuters agency.

As Spanish Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido said, according to the Madrid ultimatum, the Catalan authorities until Monday inclusive, should answer the question whether the autonomy declared its independence after the signing of the declaration.

In the case if a concrete response from Catalonia does not follow, the Spanish government threatens to take action.

"If he (the President of Catalonia - Ed.) responds ambiguously, this will mean that he does not want the dialogue, and therefore the Spanish government will have to take action," Zoido said.

In turn, the President of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont a few days earlier announced his readiness to conduct a dialogue with the government of Spain on the independence of the autonomy without preconditions.

As previously reported, the Supreme Court of Catalonia on 11 October recognized that the declaration of independence of Catalonia has no legal force.
