The country had tried to stop the illegal referendum on independence held in Catalonia a week ago and the issue is now causing problems for the region's economic climate.

"The message is crystal clear: Catalonian independence is not going to happen", De Guindos said. This "legal position" establishes the principle according to which a State born out of secession within the EU would not automatically be considered as part of the Union. Separatist politicians say there will be a declaration of independence for the northeastern region of 7.5 million during that session, although some ruling coalition lawmakers say the move could be simply "symbolic".

"If there is a unilateral declaration of independence there will be decisions made to restore law and democracy". The "hard-core elements" of the separatist movement are pressuring Puigdemont to move ahead, said Wolfgang Piccoli, co-president of Teneo Intelligence, in a note.

She stressed her support for Spain's unity but also encouraged more dialogue.

More than 90 per cent of the Catalonians who went to the polls voted in favour of independence, although the Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy and the King have rejected the results.

The region of Catalonia, home to 7.5 million people in the northeast, is crucial to Spain, which is the EU's fifth-biggest economy and a member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

"The exit of many companies from Catalonia is the outcome of the irrational and radical policies implemented and pursued by the (regional) government", minister Luis de Guindos said as he arrived for a meeting of euro zone finance ministers in Luxembourg.

The PP's hardline attitude towards Mr Puigdemont has been given fresh momentum by Sunday's massive pro-Spanish unity rally in Barcelona.

Puigdemont is set to appear in the parliament of Catalonia on Tuesday after Monday meeting was suspended by the Spanish Constitutional Court. However, Catalans have always been calling for more say in spending, higher status for their language and recognition that they are a nation distinct from Spain, BBC writes.

Barcelona's mayor was the latest to speak out against a declaration of independence, saying this would put "social cohesion" at risk.

Any independence declaration will be rejected by the Spanish government and courts, and by many people even in Catalonia, which polls shows to be nearly evenly divided on secession. A mere "rhetorical" independence declaration would amount to surrender, CUP regional parliamentarian Mireia Boya warned on Twitter. "We have seen attempts to vote, we have seen ballot boxes, polling stations, a lot of people trying to vote". But uncertainty still stalks the country as Catalan leaders have not backed off from plans to declare the region independent.
