UK 'won't recognize' Catalan's independence

The United Kingdom has said she won't recognise the Catalan parliament's declaration of independence. Theresa May's official spokesman said that UK stands is based on fact that the declaration was based on a vote that had been declared illegal.

According to the UK prime minister's spokesman: "The UK does not and will not recognise the unilateral declaration of independence made by the Catalan regional parliament. It is based on a vote that was declared illegal by the Spanish courts. We continue to want to see the rule of law upheld, the Spanish constitution respected, and Spanish unity preserved."

Catalan MPs backed the independence motion 70-10 in a ballot boycotted by the opposition. However, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy had told senators direct rule was needed to return "law, democracy and stability" to Catalonia.
