Spain govt challenges creation of Foreign Ministry in Catalonia

Spain’s caretaker government said Friday it will mount a legal challenge to halt the creation of a foreign affairs ministry by Catalonia. Government lawyers will ask the nation’s Constitutional Court to order the suspension of the ministry in the separatist-dominated regional government.

It is seeking support abroad for Catalonia’s independence from Spain, Justice Minister Rafael Catala said, adding that Spanish foreign policy can only be set by the central government in Madrid.

Catalonia’s authorities last month approved its foreign affairs ministry and named prominent separatist politician Raul Romeva as its head.
