The World

July 11, 1986

The United States agreed to an immediate 10% reduction of its 4,500 military personnel at one of four bases in Spain, officials said after the first round of bilateral negotiations in Madrid. In a joint communique, Spanish and U.S. officials announced that "the United States will reduce part of its military personnel at Torrejon (air base), replacing them with civilians, most of them Spanish." The communique, which said a second round of talks will be held in Washington in October, refers to the talks as "part of the process leading to the renewal of the mutual treaty of defense and cooperation," which expires in 1988.
