I think the Spanish don't believe the proposed "pause" is worth negotiating about. What do Spanish get if ETA just plan to start hostilities again?http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2010/0...nd-reject.html
Have there been many cases of countries refusing to accept ceasefires?
I can understand why the Spanish Government would take this stance but I do believe that any opportunity for dialogue should be taken.
Why facilitate them? Who knows what their intelligence operatives have picked up about real intentions...
