Mediator calls for ‘reconciliation’ after ETA dissolution

Cambo-les-Bains (France) (AFP) – The dissolution of the Basque separatist group ETA must now lead to “reconciliation” between its former members and authorities, one of the mediators in the years-long process said at a peace conference on Friday.

The group’s decision to disband is “a commitment to take part in the democratic process” within Spain’s institutions, “which will require reconciliation,” South African lawyer Brian Currin said at the conference in Cambo-les-Bains, southwest France.
