  • Description

    UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE DEAN RUSK ARRIVED IN MADRID, SPAIN, LAST NIGHT (SATURDAY) FOR TALKS WHICH WILL INCLUDED THE QUESTION OF RENEWAL OF AMERICAN BASES IN SPAIN. MR. RUSK FLEW TO MADRID FROM THE NATO CONFERENCE IN BRUSSELS, AND WAS MET BY SPANISH FOREIGNER FERNANDO MARIA CASTIELLA. HE WAS DUE TO HAVE TALKS WITH THE FOREIGN MINISTER LAST NIGHT, BUT THEY WERE CANCELLED WHEN MR. RUSK HAD A SUDDEN ATTACK OF INFLUENZA.

    MR RUSK IS EXPECTED TO PREPARE THE GROUND FOR NEW NEGOTIATIONS ON EXTENDING BY FIVE YEARS THE 15-YEAR-OLD AMERICA-SPANISH DEFENCE PACT. TALKS IN WASHINGTON ON EXTENSION OF THIS PACT LAST SEPTEMBER FAILED TO REACH AGREEMENT.

    IF TERMS ARE NOT AGREED BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES, THE UNITED STATES WILL HAVE TO WITHDRAW FROM SPAIN BY MARCH 1970.

    RECENTLY THERE HAVE BEEN DEMANDS FOR THE CLOSURE OF THE UNITED STATES 16TH AIR FORCE BASE AT TORREJON, 14 MILES (22 KMS.) OUTSIDE MADRID.

    SOME SPANIARDS CLAIM THAT THE BASE, WHICH IS SHARED WITH SPANISH FORCES, IS DANGEROUSLY CLOSE TO MADRID.
