Press Release

(Washington, D.C.)-  Today, Congressman Sires released the following statement regarding the recent events in the region of Catalonia:

“I am encouraged that the government of Catalonia has taken steps to suspend its quest for independence.  Holding elections that are deemed illegal by the Spanish Constitutional Court is not the best way forward for a peaceful and prosperous Spain. Instead of making rash decisions that continue to deteriorate relations with Madrid, the Catalan government should now focus on working towards a peaceful solution with the central government to ensure that the stability of the region is not jeopardized.”
