Conference on terrorism opens in Madrid

MADRID (AFP) - An international conference on terrorism opened in Madrid, kicking off four days of discussions that are to culminate with commemorations marking the first anniversary of the March 11, 2004 train bombings in the capital blamed on Al-Qaeda.

Leaders and top government officials from more than 20 countries are attending the symposium, which was being carried out under tight security.

Spain's Prince Felipe inaugurated the conference by saying it underscored the international community's condemnation of terrorism.
"It allows us at the same time to pay an emotional homage and show recognition and respect to all victims of terrorism," the prince said, adding that Spain and the world would never forget "the profound grief of those hours" following the March 11 attacks.

"Terrorism is a threat to life, it disavows fundamental rights, denies liberty and attacks the legality of the state. It is thus the enemy of democracy. Its eradication is a priority," said Felipe, calling for increased cooperation to that end.

Felipe's speech casareal.es:


Palabras de Su Alteza Real el Príncipe de Asturias en la Cumbre Internacional sobre Democracia, Terrorismo y Seguridad
Madrid, 8 de marzo de 2005


En primer lugar, permítanme dar las gracias al Club de Madrid y a todos los que junto a esta entidad han trabajado y colaborado para organizar esta Cumbre Internacional sobre Democracia, Terrorismo y Seguridad, por invitarnos a la Princesa y a mí a presidir este acto.

Es un honor para nosotros dar nuestra más cordial bienvenida a España -más concretamente a Madrid- a todas las personalidades y expertos de muy diverso origen y nacionalidad que han querido sumarse a esta importante cita. Su participación en el marco de esta Cumbre nos reconforta, pues nos confirma que en la comunidad internacional no faltan voluntad, esfuerzos y recursos para afrontar con éxito la lucha contra la abominable amenaza que el terrorismo plantea a las sociedades democráticas.

España, una sociedad libre, plural, democrática y amante de la paz, viene sufriendo por desgracia desde hace muchos años los estragos de muerte y dolor que causa el terrorismo. Pero también ha expresado el rechazo y la indignación que todo atentado siempre genera.

Este acto, en vísperas del primer aniversario de los atroces atentados terroristas perpetrados el 11 de marzo de 2004 en Madrid, nos brinda la oportunidad de reiterar nuestra más firme condena y repulsa ante la barbarie que entraña el terrorismo, por su consustancial desprecio a los derechos y libertades fundamentales. Nos permite, al mismo tiempo, rendir un emocionado homenaje de reconocimiento y respeto a todas las víctimas del terrorismo, así como expresar una vez más de corazón a todos sus familiares nuestro mayor afecto, apoyo y reconocimiento de una deuda solidaria.

Unos sentimientos que en estas fechas queremos dedicar en particular a los ciento noventa y dos niños, mujeres y hombres que fueron brutalmente asesinados, a los cientos de personas que sufrieron heridas de diversa consideración en aquellos crueles atentados del pasado 11 de marzo en Madrid, y a las familias de todos ellos. Nunca podremos olvidar la honda conmoción y el profundo dolor vividos en aquellas horas, ni todos aquellos gestos solidarios y generosos que se vieron entonces en nuestra ciudad.

Democracia y terrorismo son, obviamente, dos conceptos absolutamente irreconciliables. La democracia, cuya extensión y consolidación en el mundo entero constituyen la razón de ser del Club de Madrid, se basa en el respeto a los derechos humanos, a la libertad y al pluralismo, y requiere del buen funcionamiento del Estado de Derecho para garantizarla. El terrorismo es, en cambio, por esencia y por definición, una amenaza para la vida, ultraja los derechos fundamentales, niega la libertad y ataca al Estado de Derecho. Por ello, es consustancialmente enemigo de la democracia.

La violencia terrorista, sus asesinatos, los daños que causa, las amenazas y extorsiones que utiliza, no admiten justificación alguna. Su erradicación constituye un objetivo prioritario e inaplazable. Un objetivo que reclama la unidad de todos los demócratas, el empleo de todos los instrumentos del Estado de Derecho y el refuerzo efectivo de la cooperación internacional, hasta conseguir su total eliminación.

También nos debemos a todas y cada una de las víctimas del terrorismo, a sus familiares y amigos más cercanos. Su memoria, inmenso dolor, inconsolable tristeza, ejemplo y valentía nos recuerdan la dimensión de la deuda que tenemos contraída con todos ellos. Siempre estarán en nuestro corazón. Pero, ello no basta. No sólo merecen cariño y consuelo, sino también respeto, dedicación y entrega solidaria a sus derechos, necesidades, problemas y anhelos.

En definitiva, como dije al inaugurar hace poco más de un año el I Congreso Internacional sobre Víctimas del Terrorismo, el compromiso de los Gobiernos, de la comunidad internacional, de todas las fuerzas políticas democráticas y de los propios ciudadanos frente al terrorismo debe permanecer activo y alerta. Nuestro objetivo común no puede ser otro que acabar con él.

A la mentalidad totalitaria de los terroristas debemos oponer nuestra pasión por la vida, por la libertad, por la justicia y por la democracia. Ante su brutalidad y ante quienes los amparan o protegen, contamos con la superioridad ética de un sistema que hace del pluralismo su piedra angular y, por ende, debemos desplegar la eficacia de las instituciones democráticas, el peso de la ley y de la justicia. En ello reside nuestra razón y nuestra fuerza.

Para poner fin a mis palabras, tan sólo quiero desearles mucho éxito en su tarea. Como Heredero de la Corona, pero también como persona y como ciudadano, junto a todos ustedes, albergamos la esperanza de que los resultados de sus trabajos sirvan para avanzar en la erradicación del terrorismo y contribuyan a potenciar, todavía más, nuestro compromiso común de luchar coordinada y firmemente contra la barbarie que representa este fenómeno. Un empeño que no puede disociarse del inexcusable deber de apoyo, entrega y solidaridad que tenemos contraído con todas las víctimas del terrorismo y con sus familias.

Muchas gracias.

As always, fantastic pictures Pdas1201! :)

It's great to see Letizia in something new! (To quote marezdote: Finally is right!) And a very nice, professional look (as always from her!).

And I do think she looks terrific since returning from Brazil. I noticed that in a few of the pictures (especially iin the one of her in the pink shirt with the long multi-coloured scarf then the next day in the casual beige top) that Letizia looked really relaxed and less formal than she usually appears.

From Elmundo:
http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2005/0...110275891.html

I just translated some parts of it:

The Prince of Asturias has inaugurated the Summit of Madrid on Democracy, Terrorism and Security with a speech plagued of references to the victims and their families, to whom he has expressed his affection and support, "because we have to recognize them the solidary debt from all the society".
The Princes presided over the inauguration of the international conference, organized by the Club of Madrid, where twenty representatives of Government and Chiefs of State (more than 30 ex- governors and 165 experts) are participating.
Don Felipe has expressed his "firm sentence and repulses towards the barbarism that involves terrorism". "We will never be able to forget the deep commotion and the horror lived in those hours", he said, referring to the brutal attacks of 11-M, whose first anniversary is pointed out this Friday.
"To the totalitarian mentality of the terrorists - he added - we must oppose our passion for life, freedom, justice and democracy", because our reason and our force reside in unfolding the "effectiveness of the democratic institutions, the weight of the law and justice". "Terrorism", he continued, "is enemy of democracy and international security". "Democracy and terrorism are two absolutely irreconciliable concepts", affirmed the heir, who has concluded his speech remembering "the obligation of support contracted with all the families of the victims".
Don Felipe closed, with his speech, the inauguration act of the International Summit on Democracy, Terrorism and Security, which is organized by the Club of Madrid and reunites, in the Municipal Palace of Congresses of the Campo de las Naciones, twenty representatives of Government and Chiefs of State, more than 30 ex- governors and about 200 experts.
The Heir to the Spanish Throne, accompanied by the Princess of Asturias, presided over the innauguration act of this Summit, which will be closed by the King, next 10th March, the eve of the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Madrid, that harvested the life of 192 people and left near 2,000 wounded people.
The inauguration act was attended by the ex- Brazilian Chief of State and president of the Club of Madrid, Fernando Henrique Cardoso; the Secretary of State of Foreign Subjects, Bernardino Leon; the president of the Community of Madrid, Esperanza Aguirre, and the mayor of the capital, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón.

I'll try to do my best, Pdas...


First of all, allow me to thank the Club of Madrid and all those close to this organization, who have worked and collaborated to organize this International Summit on Democracy, Terrorism and Security, for inviting us, the Princess and me, to preside over this act.

It is an honour to more concretely give our warmest welcome to Spain, to Madrid, to all the personalities and experts of very diverse origin and nationality, who wanted to add themselves to this important meeting. Their participation within the framework of this Summit comforts us, because it confirms that, among the international community, there’s no lack of will, efforts and resources to successfully confront the fight against the abominable threat that terrorism raises in democratic societies.

Spain, a free, plural, democratic and Peace loving society, has unfortunately suffering for many years the damage of death and pain that terrorism causes. But it has also expressed the rejection and the indignation that all the attacks always generate.

This act, on the eve of the first anniversary to the atrocious terrorist attacks perpetrated the 11th of March 2004 in Madrid, offers the opportunity to reiterate our firmest sentence and repulse towards the barbarism that terrorism involves, by its consubstantial scorn to the fundamental rights and liberties. It allows us, at the same time, to pay a moved tribute in recognition and respect to all the victims of terrorism, as well as to express by heart, once again, our greatest affection, support and recognition to all their relatives.

These are feelings that we individually want to dedicate on these dates to one hundred the ninety-two children, women and men, who were brutally assassinated, to the hundreds of people who underwent wounds of diverse consideration, in those cruel attacks of past 11th of March in Madrid, and to the families of all of them. We will never be able to forget the deep commotion and the deep pain lived in those shared and generous hours, nor all those gestures that were seen then in our city.

Democracy and terrorism are, obviously, two absolutely irreconcilables concepts. Democracy, whose extension and consolidation throughout the world constitute the reason of being of the Club of Madrid, is based on the respect to the human rights, the freedom and pluralism, and requires the good operation of the State of Right, to guarantee it. Terrorism is, however, by essence and definition, a threat for the life, outrages the fundamental rights, denies freedom and attacks the State of Right. For that reason, it is consubstantially an enemy of Democracy.

The terrorist violence, its murders, the damages that it causes, the threats and extortions it uses, admit no justification. Its eradication constitutes a high-priority and can't be a postponed objective. An objective that demands the unit of all the democratic people, the use of all the instruments of the State of Right and the effective reinforcement of the international cooperation, until obtaining its total elimination.

We are also in debt to all and each one of the terrorism victims, to their closest relatives and friends. Their memory, immense pain, inconsolable sadness, example and heroicness remembers us the dimension of the debt that we have contracted with all of them. They will always be in our heart. But, it is not enough. Not only do they deserve affection and consolation, but also respect and dedication to their rights, necessities, problems and yearnings.

Definitely, as I recently said, when inaugurating (more than a year ago) the I International Congress on Victims of Terrorism, the commitment of the Governments, of the international community, all the democratic political forces and the citizens themselves, towards the fight agaist terrorism must remain active and alert. Our common objective cannot be other than to end him.

To the totalitarian mentality of the terrorists we must oppose our passion for life, freedom, justice and democracy. Before its brutality and before those who protect them, we count on the ethical superiority of a system that makes of pluralism its angular stone and, therefore, must unfold the effectiveness of the democratic institutions, the power of the law and justice. Our reason and our force reside in it.

In order to end my words, I just want to wish you much success in its task. As the Heir to the Throne, but also as a person and citizen, next to all of you, we still carry the hope that the results of your works will serve to eradicate terrorism and contribute to harness, once more, our common commitment to firmly and co-ordinately fight against the barbarism that this phenomenon represents. A persistence that cannot be dissociated from the inexcusable duty of support and solidarity, which we have contracted with all the victims of terrorism and their families.

Thank you very much.

Thank you for translating the speech Elsa and of course for all the other photos!

I think the most asked question is what Felipe is doing in this one picture
And I totally agree, Letizia's dress looks very nice. She seems to be really relaxed and happy.
