ACN Luxembourg – The head of the campaign for the officialization of Catalan by the platform for the language, Pol Cruz-Corominas, asked the Spanish government on Tuesday for “explicit progress” in the officialization of Catalan in the EU. In statements from Luxembourg, Cruz-Corominas has noted that only with “explicit progress” will it be possible to “trust the optimism expressed by the Spanish government”. “We cannot continue with these dissonant perceptions between the optimism of the Spanish government in the meetings behind closed doors and how immature the subject seems to be due to the previous statements of the ministers,” he stressed.
After the meeting with European ministers, where the issue was discussed again, the representative of Plataforma per la Léngua defended that the proposal “should be ready” to be put to a vote at the next meeting on November 15. “There is no insurmountable obstacle that should delay the times,” he claimed.
Regarding the Spanish government’s proposal to adapt the reform to prevent other languages from claiming official status and thus allay the fears of European partners, Cruz-Corominas pointed out that “these languages should do a preliminary job” in their states for to get the recognition that Catalan has.
