  • Description

    Malta Prime Minister Dom Mintoff, who at the weekend called off last-ditch talks in London on the island's military bases, told a youth rally in Malta on Sunday that the island would face hard times unless a last minute reconciliation is achieved.

    So the deadlock over the rent to be paid for the military bases continues. Malta has demanded an annual payment of GBP18 million sterling a year, whereas the best Britain and her North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies can offer is GBP14 million sterling.

    Failing agreement on Malta's terms, Mr. Mintoff's youth rally message to the British was an unequivocal "Get out! Get out!" -- one of several English interjections in a predominantly Maltese speech. The Prime Minister's speech roused Youth League members to an enthusiastic response.
