Ortuzar: “We shall be advocating a new status in which Euskadi is recognised as a nation” and establishes “bilateral relations with the state”

“A free Euskadi. That is our goal and that is our path. We shall be advocating a new status in which Euskadi is recognised as a nation, as a political subject on equal terms with a bilateral relationship with the state. Let Basques be governed by Basque institutions. And let the Basques decide on their own future.” With this reflection, Andoni Ortuzar closed his speech at the Aberri Eguna celebrations held in the Plaza Nueva square in Bilbao, before around 4000 EAJ-PNV members and sympathisers. The celebrations lasted well into the evening at the city‘s El Arenal boulevard, with a sit-down meal and subsequent procession. Basque Premier Iñigo Urkullu spoke before Mr. Ortuzar and supported the “validity of the PNV model. We must remain consistent, because we are sure that we are going in the right direction and that one day we will reach our goal: we are a nation and we shall continue advancing with more democracy and plurality towards our recognition and our freedom”, said Mr. Urkullu.
