June 28.—<UP3 —Generalissimo Francisco Franco, nationalist chieftain, defended air raids on loyalist ports today and charged that an international clamor of protest against them had been stirred by communist* who hoped to foment war. Franco denied that his aviator* had deliberately bombed British merchantmen. He said that the raids were purely of military nature and, as a solution of the neutral ship problem, he repeated his suggestion for designation of safety port*, far removed from war zones and under control of neutral observer*, for foreign shipping. The insurgent generalissimo made hi* statement to a British newspaper correspondent here. “The international repercussions caused by the bombing of sh IJK lying at anchor were initiated by means of a Soviet propaganda campaign whose aim was to defame the nationalists,” he said.
