Basque separatists reached out

May 17 2005

Spanish lawmakers should approve today a government proposal for talks with the Basque separatist group ETA , which claimed responsibility for a series of bomb blasts on Sunday in the industrial areas in the Basque territory.

However, conservatives called the move premature.

The lower house of Parliament were planning to arrange a meeting to discuss the actions of Prime Minister Rodriguez Zapatero, who appealed to parliamentarians to support the proposal to negotiate with the militants ETA. As the prime minister said it would withdraw from the question of independence of the Basque territory and begin a dialogue about the dissolution of the organization and the fate of 500 prisoners belonging to ETA.

Meanwhile, up to date, no Spanish government did not ask for support on the issue of talks with ETA representatives in parliament - reports Associated Press.
