Last quote by Mariano Rajoy on Catalonia

I ask Puigdemont to act sensibly, in a balanced way, to put the interests of all citizens first. It's not that difficult to reply to the question: Has Catalonia declared independence? Because if it has, the government is obliged to act in one way, and if it has not we can talk here.feedback

All quotes by Mariano Rajoy on Catalonia

If someone is asked to go to a polling station, do not go, because there can be no referendum and it would be an absolutely illegal act.feedback

The decision of unilaterally declaring independence doesn't depend on me. It's a decision that can't be taken by the Parliament of Catalonia. I honestly think it is a mistake. . What will not happen is a valid and democratic referendum with any guarantees.feedback

The most sensible, the most reasonable and the most democratic thing to do is to stop. End this situation, end the harassment to mayors and councillors, end the demonstrations before the courts to intimidate the judges. That's not democratic.feedback

It will not happen because this would mean liquidating the law.feedback

Don't go ahead. Go back to the law and democracy. This referendum is a chimera. Stop this escalation of radicalism and disobedience once and for all. We will not accept a return to the darkest times.feedback

Disobedience to the law by a public power is the opposite of democracy. Now is an impossible chimera or an excuse to delve even more in the fracture they have caused in Catalan society.feedback

Don't go ahead, you don't have any legitimacy to do it. Go back to the law and democracy (...) This referendum is a chimera.feedback

If anyone urges you to go to a polling station, don't go because the referendum can't take place, it would be an absolutely illegal act.feedback

What we're seeing in Catalonia is an attempt to eliminate the constitution and the autonomous statute of Catalonia … Logically, the state has to react. There is no democratic state in the world that would accept what these people are trying to do. They've been warned and they know the referendum can't take place.feedback

The only thing I ask of [Catalan] mayors is that they comply with the law, and as such don't participate in an illegal referendum.feedback

There won't be a referendum, there won't be one!feedback

No state in the world can accept…the things that are being proposed here. We have told them: you are making a mistake and you will force us to do things we don't want to do.feedback

That's something that the government and the courts can't allow. There won't be a self-determination referendum because that would be taking away from other Spaniards the right to decide their future. The Constitution can be modified but through the rules and channels established, never through disobedience.feedback

The consultation is not going to happen in any case. We are defending national sovereignty, the principle of legality and the institutions. We are defending the rights of all citizens, above all of the Catalans. I am very conscious of what is at play, I know what is expected of me. I have not dedicated so many years to my country to now permit our model of coexistence to be broken. I will stop at nothing to avoid it.feedback

There, with all of Catalan society and all of Spain ... we will once again give a clear message of unity and condemnation of terrorism, and of love for the city of Barcelona.feedback

We know that terrorism can be defeated. It can be defeated through institutional unity, police cooperation, prevention, international support and the firm determination to defend the values of our civilization.feedback

I will not allow anyone to assume unlimited powers outside the laws of democracy. I will uphold the law and democracy throughout Spain, starting by defending the Spanish sovereignty present inside the people of Spain.feedback

No one is going to break up Spain in any way. Nobody is going to turn citizens of Catalonia into foreigners in their own country, which is what some people are attempting to do. The state and government will not leave you unprotected.feedback

If what he wanted was to create tension, divide the society, go above the law, we need to recognise that those objectives were reached. If what he wanted was to show a pro-independence Catalonia he failed.feedback

As President of the Government I am and I will be everybody's President. I defend the permanence of Catalonia in Spain because I can't think of Spain without Catalonia and I can't think of Catalonia outside Spain and outside Europe.feedback

I want a Catalonia in Spain, in Europe, and I want a Spain in Europe like I want Galicia. That is our place, co-existing with democracy, freedom and progress in Catalonia.feedback

This is something more than a simple railway. We are in front of one of the biggest and most ambitious infrastructure projects ever undertaken in our country. This is strategic infrastructure which is going to be a new hub of prosperity for Catalonia, the rest of Spain and the whole Europe.feedback

The Parliament of Catalonia is authorised to start the process of a Constitutional reform. This is what they should have done from the beginning. This is the only legal and responsible path to go forward with its proposals. Both me and my party will be against any Constitutional reform that leads to the end of the national sovereignty.feedback
