Panama declared its support for a "united" and "strong" Spain in the face of the Catalan independence challenges, as part of the commemoration of the Spanish national holiday.
Panama's Deputy Foreign Minister, Farah Urrutia, declared that Panama joins the appeal made recently by King Felipe VI to respect democratic principles, institutions, harmony and coexistence, "which for decades have characterized the Spanish state."
Urrutia, in a reception offered on Wednesday night by the Spanish embassy on the occasion of the National Day of Spain, highlighted the message of King Felipe VI in the sense that any solution in Catalonia "must be within the respect of the Constitution Spanish, "which" is about to be 40."
"And remember: A united Spain will always be a strong Spain," said the Panamanian official.
The reception was attended, among others, by the Panamanian Vice Minister of the Presidency, Salvador Sánchez; the Ombudsman, Alfredo Castillero; the president of the Supreme Court of Justice, José Ayú Prado; and the Archbishop of Panama, José Dmingo Ulloa. Also representatives of the private company and Spanish businessmen.
