Interview with Marcelino Oreja Aguirre: his training, diplomatic career and political commitment to establishing closer relations with the European Communities (Madrid, 24 March 2010)

In this interview, Marcelino Oreja, Diplomat in the Spanish Foreign Ministry from 1960 to 1976, describes the establishment of closer relations between Spain and Europe through the country’s accession to the OEEC and other international organisations, and particularly as a result of the preferential trade agreement between Spain and the European Economic Community (EEC), signed in 1970. He also gives his views on the 1962 Munich Congress, which symbolised the need for reconciliation in Spain.
