Spain’s Gonzales Might Be Invited To Paris At Time of Next Summit

June 22, 1988

TORONTO (AP) _ President Francois Mitterrand said Tuesday he might invite Spain’s Premier Filipe Gonzales to Paris next July at the time of next year’s economic summit.

At a news conference, Mitterrand was asked if Spain might be added to the seven summit nations next year.

The French president did not answer directly, but said that Gonzales and several other leaders might be asked to visit Paris for the July 14, 1989, celebrations of the bicentennial of the French Revolution - which happens to coincide with the summit.

Officials in the summit delegations consider highly unlikely any expansion of the group’s membership, which now consists of the United States, Japan, Britain, France, West Germany, Italy, Canada and the European Economic Community.
