German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on Monday called for urgent dialogue between Catalonia and Spain, and said it was vital to prevent events from spiraling out of control after a violent police crackdown on an independence vote in the region, Reuters reported. 

“The images that reached us yesterday from Spain show how important it is to interrupt the spiral of escalation,” Gabriel said in a statement in which he echoed calls by European Union officials for dialogue between Spain and Catalonia.

Gabriel urged both sides to “keep calm” and work toward a lasting political solution that maintained the rule of law, which he said was one of the key pillars that united EU members.
