Ousted Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont will cooperate with Spanish and Belgian authorities even though he did not appear before Spanish judges earlier on Thursday, his Belgian lawyer said.

"The climate is not good, it is better to take some distance," lawyer Paul Bekaert told Reuters.

"If they ask, he will cooperate with Spanish and Belgian justice," Bekaert added.
