"In Catalonia, those who bet more on the dialogue will be those who approximate a recovery of stability and minimum understanding and coexistence"
Regarding the situation in Catalonia, Zapatero has stressed that he is "absolutely convinced" that in the long term "those who are more committed to dialogue will be those who approximate a recovery of stability and minimum understanding and coexistence."
In this sense, he added that when you have the conviction that dialogue is the only way out "you have to start it up". “There is no alternative to the crisis we have had in Catalonia other than dialogue. It has to be an open and sincere dialogue, ”he defended.
For the former socialist leader, it has to be a dialogue that "does not cease, where everyone can propose all the alternatives there are." "The independentistas made a trip to nowhere that has no return, but Spanish democracy makes us have to reach out to return from that trip," he stressed.

In this context, Zapatero has predicted that “sooner or later the dialogue will be launched” in Catalonia and stressed that the dialogue “is the essence of politics”. Thus, he pointed out that we have to talk “always until the last minute, until the last second, with the most incredibly difficult adversary”.
"It causes me perplexity, almost allergy, to hear certain current speeches that condemn the dialogue, that exclude it and that even consider it a vice," he criticized.
