Two key allies of Catalan president Carles Puigdemont called on him not to waste any more time, and to ignore the Spanish government's threats to take over some or total control of Catalonia's regional government.
Addressing the Catalan Parliament in Barcelona on Tuesday evening, Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont said: "We call on global states and organisations to recognise the Catalan republic as an independent and sovereign state".
Just a day after clashes broke out in Spain between Catalan independence supporters and pro-unity followers during the National Day celebrations, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has today expressed concern about separatist tendencies in Europe and how he had asked Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to stop the Catalans "running amok". He had said that Catalonia was proceeding with a declaration of independence, but proposed freezing its implementation for a few weeks to allow for dialogue and mediation with Spain's government. If Mr Puigdemont says he did, then he will have three more days to cancel any secession plans.
If he failed to do so, Rajoy added, the government would use article 155 of the constitution, which permits the imposition of direct rule on autonomous regions.
Puigdemont made a symbolic declaration of independence on Tuesday night, only to suspend it seconds later and call for negotiations with Madrid.
