Read in Catalan

The Catalan government's new representative in Brussels, Meritxell Serret, has begun international contacts in her new post, being received by the representative of Scotland. Serret took part in an encounter at Scotland House in the EU capital, at which she spoke to her Scottish counterpart, Mike Neilson.

The Catalan government designated Meritxell Serret as representative in the EU capital, coinciding with the fact that she is exiled in Brussels. The nomination received a cool reaction from the Spanish government, which has rejected having any contact with her.

This Wednesday, Serret received the vice president of the key Catalan cultural group Òmnium Cultural, Marcel Mauri. The deputy leader of this pro-independence organisation announced Òmnium's intention of opening a delegation in the city. Mauri also met exiled minister Lluís Puig, and visited the exhibition on the 1st October referendum at the church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste.
