Jordan rejects Catalan declaration of independence.

AMMAN, Oct 29 (KUNA) -- The Jordanian government said on Sunday that it does not recognize the Catalonia's declaration of independence from Spain. "Jordan sees the Catalan referendum as unconstitutional and unrecognized," a statement by the Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Al-Momani said. Al-Momani, who is also Jordan's government spokesperson, added, "Spain's constitutional norms and laws should be respected." Jordan's government supports all measures that would be taken by the Spanish government to maintain the country's unity, he said, pointing out the strong ties between Jordan and Spain. Catalans voted for independence in a referendum earlier this month, and recently the Catalan Autonomous Parliament followed suit in their own vote. The Madrid government immediately reacted by revoking Catalonia's regional autonomy and imposing direct rule. The Spanish Constitutional Court also ruled the vote illegal. (end) mgb.mys
