Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy Wednesday rejected calls to respond to a disarmament pledge by the Basque separatist group ETA.
Rajoy insisted the group disband unconditionally despite its pledge last week, in response to questions from Basque politicians in parliament.
"We do not have to give them anything in return for disbanding," Rajoy said during a state of the nation debate.
International monitors last week said they had overseen the decommissioning of a small cache of weapons by the group, but Rajoy's government shrugged off the claim.
