Catalan leader says will not declare independence during mandate

Catalan's leader, Carles Puigdemont, on Monday ruled out any declaration of independence during his mandate, reported AFP.

Mr Puigdemont, who was elected to power in January on a pro-independence platform said however the party would do all the work needed for independence.

"Because it's not planned and it's not our commitment," Mr Puigdemont said in an interview, adding, "we will do all the work necessary for this country to become an independent state."
