Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, that's exactly what has happened. Zapatero has not med Batasuna as they are officially outlawed. The Basque regional president (Lehendakari: you must learn this tearm if you're supposed to know about Taoiseach) has run a similar series of meetings with basque parties, which were boycotted by the PP because Batasuna was not excluded.

Zapatero is expected to go before the Congress of Deputies in june and claim that "according to intelligence and the security forces" the activities of ETA have come to a complete standstill. He will then seek a vote authorising him to "talk" to ETA.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
