FIRS' president views on the issue

Isidro Oliveras is concerned about the effect that all the public celebrations and political support will have on the final admission of Catalonia as a full member of the FIRS.
Oliveras thinks that all this publicity will effect negatively on the possibilities of Catalonia being recognised since the matter has gone far beyond a simple sport issue.
According to Oliveras the euphoria showed by the Catalans has alerted the Spanish Federation and all parties interested in the no admission of Catalonia and consequently now they will try even harder to get more votes against Catalonia.
Oliveras states that there are a few countries that have already agreed with the Spanish Federation to vote against Catalonia. These are Italy, Portugal, France and Macau.
