Spain said that talks with U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger have failed to break a deadlock over the issue of reducing the American military presence there. Chief Foreign Ministry spokesman Inocencio Arias said that "each side expressed their points of view, but the positions are still far apart." If an agreement is not reached by the end of the year, Madrid has threatened to expel all U.S. forces.

Spain has warned that it will expel all U.S. forces unless an agreement on reducing their numbers is reached before the end of the year.

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.
