Turkey says Catalan independence declaration 'wrong'
Turkey's EU Minister Ömer Çelik has said the Catalan Parliament’s decision to declare independence from Spain is "wrong", and Turkey will continue to support Spain's territorial integrity, Yenusafak reports.
"We do not find Catalonia's declaration of independence legitimate," Çelik said in a live television interview aired late Friday on Kanal 24.
"Turkey will continue to support Spain's territorial integrity, constitution and political unity," he added.
The minister said the move would "serve nothing but mostly harm Catalans." "What Catalonia has done is to create difficulties in a well-going system," he said.
