1979 AMENDMENTS TO LADES AGREEMENT WITH PORTUGAL
Background. The 1951 Defense Agreement between Portugal
and the US, previously extended in 1957 and 1971, defines US
base rights in the Azores. The 1979 extension expires Febru-
ary 4, 1983; while of nine years in duration, it had been made
retroactive to 1974 to cover the five years during which we
had de facto but not de _ure peacetime privileges.
