‘Europe defence our first priority’ from The Guardian (15 September 1970)

On 15 September 1970, the British daily newspaper The Guardian reports on the statement made at the Council meeting of Western European Union (WEU) by Anthony Royle, British Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs, on the priorities of British defence. Although the defence of Europe remains a priority, the address by Anthony Royle particularly focuses on the importance of security in the Mediterranean, given the Soviet advance into the region.
