    The crisis continues in Catalonia

    TEHRAN _ In 2006, when some residents of Catalonia called for the autonomy of this state in a broad referendum, some separatist groups became active in the region. This activity was very limited because many of Catalans believed that, despite being autonomous, there was no place for a claim for independence from Spain. However, over time, we witnessed the intensification of the economic crisis in Catalonia, on the one hand, and the increase in the activities of the separatists on the other. The Catalonia's rising debt to the central government (which now accounts for nearly € 42 billion) has been the result of the inaction of the authorities of the central government of Madrid.

However, over the next ten days, it seems that the U.S. Congress has announced its final deal on a nuclear deal. Some analysts believe that Congress intends to put more red lines on it, while maintaining a nuclear deal. This is despite the fact that the nuclear deal with Iran can not be changed fundamentally! This is something that most international actors are focusing on.
