The U.S. government, already embroiled in a conflict with Spain over bases there, is now facing another dispute over a treaty with Portugal on the other side of the Iberian peninsula. Irritated by U.S. congressional cuts in military and economic assistance, Prime Minister Anibal Cavaco Silva of Portugal, in an interview earlier this week, said he is considering formally calling in February, 1988, for a renegotiation of the agreement covering the U.S.

At least 142 Americans were injured as Portuguese police clubbed, kicked and rounded up about 400 U.S. sailors and Marines and British sailors in a late-night melee in Lisbon, U.S. military and diplomatic sources said Thursday. The violence grew out of a drunken brawl that began with four U.S. sailors in Lisbon's red-light district Wednesday night, attracted scores of others and ended with the arrests of 175 U.S. sailors and Marines, the Navy said.

Spanish and U.S. officials failed again Friday to reach agreement on a new treaty to keep U.S. military bases in Spain, sending their negotiations into a critical final phase that will determine the bases' fate. Both sides sought to minimize their failure and emphasized that they have decided to meet next month for an eighth round of talks on the bases, which grew out of a joint defense agreement signed in 1953, when Gen. Francisco Franco was the chief of state.
