Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has announced that he will hold meetings with Catalan regional leader Quim Torra on the 9th July.

The meeting will take place as part of a series of discussions with all the autonomous regions presidents.

It’s understood the pair will meet at the Moncloa after discussions by phone with him shortly after coming to power.
