promover

Tengo la impresión de que en el debate de hoy hemos dejado fuera la cuestión de la comunicación social, algo en lo que hicimos mucho hincapié cuando promovíamos el Tratado de Lisboa.
I have the impression that in today's discussion, we have left out the question of social communication - something we emphasised strongly when we promoted the Treaty of Lisbon.
¿Cómo podríamos decir los europeos al mundo que íbamos en serio cuando hablábamos de seguridad energética y lucha contra el cambio climático, y cuando promovíamos un mayor empleo, en caso de haber sido incapaces de resolver la cuestión institucional?
How could we Europeans say to the world that we were being serious when we talked about energy safety and the fight against climate change and when we promoted increased employment, if we were unable to resolve the institutional question?
Sin embargo, lamento señalar que resulta particularmente ambigua, ya que, en mi pregunta, hago referencia a una resolución del Parlamento Europeo que data de 1987 y dónde, en efecto, promovíamos el reconocimiento, por ejemplo, del Genocidio de los Armenios en 1915-1917.
I must, however, regretfully inform him that his answer was still particularly vague, as my question referred to a European Parliament resolution adopted in 1987, in which, effectively, we officially recognised events such as the genocide of the Armenians between 1915 and 1917.
