  • Description

    President Alejandro Lanusse of Argentina was given a warm welcome on his arrival in Spain on Saturday (24 February) for a four-day state visit.

    Lieutenant-General Lanusse, the first Argentine President to make a state visit to Spain since 1960, was greeted by Spanish Chief of State Francisco Franco with full military honours as he stepped off his aircraft at Madrid Airport.

    Later, only a few hundred spectators watched as President Lanusse drove through central Madrid, where he was given the keys of the city.

    In a speech acknowledging the presentation, the President said the purpose of his visit was to strengthen the already close ties between Spain and Argentina.
