Brussels, 7 April 2017
As Basque separatist group ETA announced that they will fully disarm by April 8, European Green Party co-chair Monica Frassoni said:
“Though the decision to give arms to local mediators has to be considered good news, the process has to continue and we expect ETA to finally dissolve as an armed organization. This move is long overdue. We pay our respect to the many victims of this long and painful conflict, which remained the last on European soil.
“We would expect the Spanish and French Governments to do their part and encourage and facilitate the reconciliation and dialogues especially in relation to prisoners by sending them closer to the Basque Country.
“We hope tomorrow ETA will complete this act of unilateral, definitive and verified disarmament."
