    1.42


    SOF EXTRACT. (TRANSLATION):



    THE YEAR WHICH HAS JUST FINISHED HAS SHOWN, AS THE YEAR WHICH IS ABOUT TO START WILL CONFIRM, THAT IN THE FIELDS OF POLITICS, ECONOMICS, CURRENCY AND DEFENCE WE HAVE BECOME OURSELVES BY REJECTING ALL SYSTEMS WHICH, UNDER THE COVER OF 'SUPRANATIONALISM' OR OF 'INTEGRATION' OR OF 'ATLANTICISM' WOULD IN REALITY HAVE KEPT US UNDER THAT HEGEMONY WHICH EVERYBODY KNOWS. BUT AT THE SAME TIME WE ARE FULLY READY FOR FRIENDLY COOPERATION WITH EACH OF OUR ALLIES. WE ARE ACTIVATING THE UNION OF WESTERN EUROPE. WE REMAIN VERY ACTIVE IN REGARD TO THE AID WHICH WE GIVE TO NATIONS IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT. WE ARE MAKING CLOSE AND CLOSER CONTACTS WITH LATIN AMERICA, A CONTINENT WITH A VERY VAST FUTURE, AND PARTICULARLY CLOSE TO US IN SPIRIT AND IN HEART. WE ARE RENEWING RELATIONS WITH CHINA, AND WE ARE INCREASING OUR RELATIONS WITH THE EAST EUROPEAN STATES, AS THEIR INTERNAL DEVELOPMENTS DIRECT THEM TOWARDS PEACE.
