King Meets With Separatist Leaders

King Felipe met briefly with Catalonia’s new leaders, who are pushing for independence from Spain.

His Majesty gathered with new Catalan President Carles Puigdemont and Parliament President Carme Forcadell late last month at the Gran Liceo theater in Barcelona for the opening of this year’s Mobile World Congress.
