B92. Catalonia plans secession “a la Kosovo” 18oct2012
BRUSSELS — Catalonia is planning to secede from Spain following the example of Kosovo, European media are reporting this week.
This comes after the province’s authorities said they would call a referendum on self-determination.
Catalan politicians want a new state of the European Union to be “Greater Catalonia” which would include the Balearic Islands, the Valencia region – and
perhaps also some border regions toward France.
This policy will be put to the test in a referendum planned for 2014.
