Ibarretxe addressed economic crisis, globalization and inequality and underlined the importance of each country's own culture. He also used a fitting metaphor to describe the Catalan process, comparing it to climbing to the top of the Everest, and reminded Basque President Agirre's words: "Always with Catalonia".
