sustentar or apoyar


Explanation:
In Spanish you "sustentar" a statement or case. You can also "apoyar" it.

(To "sostener" is maintain an argument or allegation, generally over time.)

A good trick to double-checking terminology like this is to run a search on www.google.com, or www.altavista.com, with your proposed phrase, to see how many hits you get. Go to the advanced search function, and selected the language as well as the domain (for instance, if your target is in Mexico, select .mx ... this helps you keep consistent with the area you're translating for. :-)
