«The name of the language and its identity should not be used in meaningless controversies nor exploited for any cultural, social or political issues, since that only attributes to the lack of cohesion between speakers, hampers attempts to promote the use of the language and obstructs its generalised use.»

«The diversity of terms for designating Valencian should not be used for projecting a fragmented image of the linguistic system which we Valencians share with other regions. Initiatives adopted by public authorities to spread Valencian beyond our linguistic area are fully recognised by the AVL. These initiatives should always guarantee the dissemination of our unique linguistic characteristics while respecting

conceptual and denotative criteria of integration.»

Moreover, point 5 of this declaration describes the coming of a more detailed and precise resolution on the aforementioned issues, while in point 6 the AVL asked «to be consulted by public institutions when passing laws or undertaking initiatives on Valencian concerning those areas which are the legal jurisdiction of the AVL».
