    Quim Torra, the leader of the Spanish region of Catalonia, says he will meet the country's new prime minister, Pedro Sanchez. Torra said he has exchanged messages with Sanchez on the Catalan region's future following last year's unilateral declaration of independence, which was declared illegal.

    However, no date has yet been set for discussions.
