Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez said that negotiations should begin “as soon as possible” on reducing the number of American servicemen in Spain. Gonzalez said his Socialist government wants to cut the number of the 12,600 U.S. troops at four U.S. bases in Spain “to the level allowed by Spain’s strategic interests and the interests of the (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) alliance to which it belongs.” Gonzalez is due to meet President Reagan next week during the President’s European trip.
