This is reflected in the recordings of the six meetings held. The biggest inconvenience Catalonia caused was because of the snow but in the end I accepted. COE transmits to Catalonia that if it wants its project, it should be for 2034
“We understand that this option may be more than acceptable (…) Argan expresses the position we are working on, as I have just publicly defended.” this is how he answers jose angel ironAragon’s coach, when asked about his situation Alexander White, President of the Spanish Olympic Committee (COE), at the sixth and last technical meeting of the bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics, to be held in the Aragonese Community and the territories of Catalonia, conducted electronically, and which ends with a vote Regarding the approved distribution. Not long ago, one of the technicians hired by the Aragonese community, Charles Lancerefers to the small conflict that arose from the agreement between them: “The technical issue was discussed for five minutes.”
The sixth and last meeting was held on 22 March and was recorded by the CoE like all others. Although its contents have not been broadcast, EL Mundo has access to certain statements that were made and which contradict statements made by the President of Aragon, Xavier Lambani, in the sense that their community’s technicians were neglected. Some of them have later referred to disagreements, which were said to be, at least, of those meetings, of which this newspaper is able to know according to the recordings.

When this distribution was to begin, at the first technical meeting, on December 21, 2021, Blanco invited representatives of the communities to make their proposals.

Breaking the agreements they reached, led by Lamban, realizing it was offensive to their community, led the project, which was supported by the government. Pedro Sanchez, for pause. Only a reform from the President of Aragon, who has sought help from Sánchez without a response, despite being from the same party, could save him in the extreme, as the COE had to twice postpone the International Olympic Committee’s visit to the Commission.

The Aragonese community itself has several mayors, businessmen and leaders of communications groups who have pressured Lambon to back down, but this clashes with the electoral advantage of opposing a generalitat with a sovereignty profile.
Catalonia has officially expressed its desire to continue alone, but the CoE has not supported a separate project for 2030, which is not a joint project. If the Generalitat wants to continue alone, it must be for 2034, and that is how the government will inform it. to the Government of the President of the CoE, who should submit it to the IOC pere aragon,
