Еще of the ANC (National Catalan Assembly) and advisers of the government Meritxell Borràs, Interior Minister Joaquim Forn, Health Minister Antoni Comín and Culture Minister Lluis Puig were reportedly also seen. Puigdemont has been given until Monday to respond to Rajoy's request to clarify if he did or did not declared independence last Monday and the closed meetings were reportedly held in preparation for his answer.
