ETA repeats calls to negotiate on disbandment

Government refuses to discuss the idea of talks and insists on terrorist group’s unilateral dissolution

ETA says the end of “armed confrontation” in the Basque Country hinges on negotiation with Spain and France on three issues: the return of prisoners and exiles, the disarming of its own members and the exit of armed forces from the region.

With the Popular Party government of Mariano Rajoy deaf to its demands until it decides to disband, the group chose to update its known position in a news release detailed in Basque abertzale left newspaper Gara on Sunday.

The organization warned in the statement that there was “a real risk of being left without a way out of the process” and “the opportunity for peace being frustrated.”

Nothing to negotiate

The Spanish government has refused even to appraise the ETA news release. Interior Minister Jorge Fernández Díaz on Sunday said the government had nothing to negotiate with ETA and demanded the “unconditional dissolution” of the group as soon as possible.

“We have never negotiated nor will we ever negotiate with a terrorist group,” he told reporters after voting in the Catalan elections.
