Sumar's spokesperson, Ernest Urtasun, demanded that the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, cease "his boycott" through "friendly governments" in the process opened by the Spanish Executive to recognize the official status of the co-official languages. in the European institutions, in a press conference in which it was not clarified whether in a future amnesty law the independence movement will be required to renounce unilateralism as suggested on Sunday by the second vice president of the Government and president of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, in a interview in La Vanguardia.
Urtasun has welcomed that the Government assumes the economic cost of the recognition of co-official languages in the EU but has denounced "the obstacles" that, in his opinion, Feijóo places in this process by asking "his conservative colleagues" not to make this recognition, which must be approved unanimously by the 27 EU member states.
"We want to demand that you stop your boycott of your country's interests in Europe," said Sumar's spokesperson, who also referred to the amnesty that the independentists demand to support the inauguration of Pedro Sánchez and the interview that Yolanda Díaz gave to La Vanguard and to which the former president of the Generalitat, Carles Puigdemont, alluded yesterday in a message on the social network X.
Puigdemont warned yesterday that it is Junts to the Government that sets the conditions, after Díaz pointed out that unilaterality has no place in an amnesty agreement. Urtasun insisted on Díaz's thesis by pointing out that "every agreement implies that both parties must commit" but avoided saying whether this idea should be expressed in the text of a possible amnesty law. "I am not going to go into what the legal text that is submitted to Congress will be like because we are in that phase," he said when asked specifically about it.
Sumar's spokesperson placed his president's words on the level of mere "political reflection" in the sense that "when one walks along the path of agreement, one does not walk along the path of unilaterality," as Díaz pointed out, and contrasted the way of approaching the PP's problems in 2017, with the "shock and unilaterality" to that of the Sánchez Government with agreement and dialogue.
