dated March 17, 1954: Claim on Gibraltar

An article published in Madrid on March 14 and believed to have been written personally by General Franco says that Spain "has stretched her patience to its limits" on the Gibraltar issue with Britain. The article, which appeared under a pen name in the Falange (Government) newspaper, Arriba, said: "Faint-hearted persons and friends of compromise need not bother to seek a solution to relations between Britain and Spain. The case of Gibraltar is so grave that it goes beyond our frontiers. The fact that in these days a European nation pretends to continue to hold as a colony a piece of another sovereign nation, goes against the conscience of any honest person. Spain has stretched her patience to its limits in dealing with Britain."
