King In Barcelona, Meets With Separatist Leader

King Felipe was in Barcelona last week for the 100th anniversary of the city’s auto show, where he met briefly with Catalan President Quim Torra.

Torra, an ardent nationalist, has attempted to boycott the King’s presence in Catalonia for years after His Majesty blasted a pro-independence move.

Media outlets reported the King and Torra did not speak, and Torra tried his best to avoid doing so.
