Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini says that the violence in Catalonia will inevitably be discussed in the European Union. « This should not happen in a democracy, » Minister Soini adds. He finds that the most important thing now is to start negotiations between the Spanish government and Catalonia, and if necessary the EU should contribute to the process. Minister Soini says that the situation of Catalonia cannot be ignored.
