  2. Supports the democratic inclusive and peaceful demand for granting to a regional or minority language a co-official status in the territory where it is spoken and towards the European institutions.
  3. Considers that all European languages and cultures are part of the European patrimony; considers therefore that any technical, legal or constitutional limit as a discrimination based on linguistic or cultural criteria.
