STATEMENT BY SENATOR GEORGE MITCHELL
I fully support the Declaration issued by international leaders in San Sebastian yesterday. It is important that all possible steps are taken to bring about the end of the last armed confrontation in Europe. I join the call for ETA to declare publicly that it is ending all armed activity and seeks talks with the governments of Spain and France on the consequences of conflict. I believe there is an opportunity for lasting peace and that opportunity should be seized by all concerned.”
