  • Description

    Pablo de Lojendio, Spanish Ambassador to Cuba, expelled after a television tussle with Cuban Premier Fidel Castro, January 21, returned to Madrid, Spain, January 23.

    At the airport he was welcomed by officials from the Foreign Ministry, other Government departments, and by leaders of the National Movement, the Falange.

    The Ambassador saw General Franco January 26. Later came the announcement that the Ambassador had been dismissed from his post.

    Sources close to the Foreign Ministry said General Franco showed displeasures at the Ambassador's impulse to argue in public with a Head of State, whatever the provocation.

    Fidel Castro's five hour television talk included attacks on General Franco - and the U.S. Both the Cuban Ambassador to Madrid and the U.S. Ambassador to Havana were recalled to their own capitals after the television incident.
