US backs Spain in stopping Catalan independence

The U.S. State Department says it stands in support of Spain’s government in its efforts to stop Catalonia’s independence bid.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said: “Catalonia is an integral part of Spain, and the United States supports the Spanish government’s constitutional measures to keep Spain strong and united.”
President Donald Trump last month also said Spain should stay united, branding as “foolish” a secession vote by the Catalan regional governments.
The Spanish Senate granted the government special constitutional powers Friday to prevent Catalan independence.
