‘Felipe González: towards the creation of a socialist Europe’ from Triunfo (7 June 1975)

On 7 June 1975, the journal Triunfo publishes an interview with Felipe González, General Secretary of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party. In this interview, González outlines the conclusions of the meeting in the Landes at which socialists from the various Mediterranean countries made proposals about the development of European political unity. González rejects the idea of creating a Mediterranean socialist bloc alongside a Nordic bloc. He also announces that topics addressed at the next conference will include the importance of the Mediterranean in the geopolitical architecture of the Cold War, relations between Europe and the United States and cooperation between socialists and communists, not forgetting the tensions in Portugal, which González believes could represent a considerable obstacle for the development of a democratic alternative in Spain.
