SUBJECT: CATALONIA VP CAROD-ROVIRA SHOWS SOLIDARITY

REF: N/A

1. (U) Consul General received October 25 a note from Catalan
regional VP Josep Carod-Rovira on be half of the government of
Catalonia expressing solidarity and sympathy for the California
fires

Begin text.

Dear Mr. Robinson

I am writing you with regards to the devastating fires, which
are currently affecting California.

In these difficult moments the Catalan Government would wish to
express its solidarity and sympathy to all the American people
and especially to those who have had to leave their homes behind.

Yours truly,

Josep-Lluis Carod-Rovira

End text.

2. (U) Comment: Catalonia has developed a strong relationship
with and fondness for all things California, and this note is a
true expression of that sentiment. The Parliament sent a
delegation to visit the state several years ago and many still
rave about it and are proud of the many similarities between the
region and the state. End Comment.
