military bases in the Philippines and warned that withdrawal would play into the hands of the Communists As everybody knows the Communists have been advo cating in and outside the United Nations the elimination of American bases scattered all over the globe Macapagal told The Associated Press in an ex clusive interview It is unfortunate that some opposition leaders havev advo cated such a step but this docs not reflect popular opinion or the official view of thePhilip pine government Recent incidents involving American bases here have touched off demands for remov al of the military installations and the recall of US Ambassa dor William McCormick Blair Jr US guards killed two Filipi nos on the bases last winter prompting protest rallies and attacks against the United States in the Philippine press A World War II Japanese mortar shell was thrown into the American schoolyard at Clark Base while 750 children were inside Blair set off a furor with a statement that two Filipi nos had tried unsuccessfully lo bomb the school Shooting incidents involving Filipinos led in 1956 to negotia tions to revise the USPhilip pine military bases agreement The negotiations have never been completed buv Macapagal said discussions are still going on There are no irritants and misunderstandings between us that could not be resolved with satisfaction to both sides the president said The current talks to revise the military bases agreement are intended to promote this end Here is a partial text of the interview Q The United States and the Philippines long have en joyed cordial relations but there have been indications of strain in recent times Do you think that recent incidents which have aroused public pro test have done any damage to these relations I dont think thaf re cent incidents have done any damage to PhilippineAmerican relations So deep and abiding is the friendship and affinity of ideals between our two peoples that honest differences of opin ion cannot possibly undermine it As has been demonstrated so often in the past there are no irritants and misunderstandings between us that could not be resolved with satisfaction to both sides The currnnt talks to revise the military bases agree ment are intended to promote this end Q Do you believe the Unit PHILIPPINES turn to Pagi 2 PRESIDENT MACAPAGAL Red danger in React to plan to halt raids Suggestion
