White House Says Spain’s ETA Statement Holds Prospect For Peace

By

The announcement by ETA in Spain that it has renounced violence holds out the prospect of a historic step toward peace, although there is a long road ahead to realize this promise, National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said on Friday in a statement released by the White House.

“In this moment of hope, our thoughts go out to the many victims who have suffered due to ETA’s actions over many decades,” Vietor said.

“We recognize the courage of the Spanish government and the Spanish people in their enduring efforts to advance democracy and freedom in Spain and around the world.”

Spain and the United States are close allies in NATO and work together to promote shared values and interests within Europe and beyond, he added.
