Spain says US to help in nuclear clean-up

MADRID (AP) - Spain said Friday it had received guarantees that the United States will help clean up land contaminated with radioactivity after a mid-air collision in 1966 dumped four U.S. hydrogen bombs in the country's south.

Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo said he will discuss the clean-up with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at the Munich Security Conference in Germany on Saturday.

U.S. Embassy spokesman Jeffrey Galvin said it was premature to say a deal had been struck, but the clean up had been a subject on the agenda at recent bilateral meetings.

"There's definitely good will and Secretary Clinton did say we're taking this seriously and we're aware how sensitive it is for Spaniards," Galvin said.
