The Catalan parliament met Tuesday afternoon. Catalonia president Carles Puigdemont asked parliament to suspend the effects of Catalonia voting "yes" for independence to hold talks with Spain.
However, Puigdemont still maintains the legality of the October 1 referendum in Catalonia, stating Catalans had "won their right to become an independent country."
For now, Puigdemont seeks dialogue with Madrid.
