Chilean parliament passes statement supporting Basque process
Among other requirements, the Chilean lawmakers demand that the decision of the Basque society will be respected.
The Chilean parliament has passed unanimously a statement supporting the peace process in the Basque Country on Thursday. Among other requirements, it demands that the decision of the Basque will be respected. The document has been handed in to Basque Premier Juan Jose Ibarretxe in the afternoon.
As soon as Ibarretxe arrived in Chile, he has been welcomed with a pleasant and unexpected surprise, since a delegation of the Chilean Senate has informed him about the statement.
In the text, the Chilean lawmakers show their pleasure for the Basques’ decision to carry a peace process, resulting in a scenario where all rights will be respected.
On the other hand, former Spanish president Jose Maria Aznar tried to persuade Chilean parties not to pass that statement boosted by former president of the Christian Democrat Party of Chile Adolfo Zaldivar.
It should not come as a surprise to find out that Aznar is trying to derail the peace process, after all, his vision of the world is one in which peaceful resolution is out of the question.
