  • Description

    Turkish Premier and his Foreign Minister Zorlu were filmed by Visnews April 19-23 during a four-day official visit to Spain.

    After talks with General Franco at the Palace of El Pardo, Madrid, both Menderes and Zorlu were decorated with the insignia of the Great Cross of Isabella the Catholic.

    Their itinerary included visits to the National Institute of Industry in Madrid... the Basilica of the Valley of the Fallen, where they placed a wreath on the tomb of Falangist founder Jose Antonio ... and the Cathedral and Alcazar at Toledo, scene of the famous siege during the Civil War.

    During their visit a treaty of friendship between Turkey and Spain was signed.

    Great import was placed on the visit, the general theme being that Turkey and Spain are the guardians respectively of the east and west entrances to the Mediterranean, and that both are staunch defenders against Soviet infiltration.

    Nothing official has yet been said about the visit.
