Spanish premier wins some Basque backing

Prime Minister Leopoldo Calvo Sotelo won cautious backing from Basque leader Carlos Garaicoechea Wednesday for his decision to give the military a direct role in the battle against Basque political violence. After a two-hour meeting with the new prime minister, the leader of the Basque autonomous government told reporters there was a reciprocal desire to work together in the present difficult political situation.

Mr. Garaicoechea said the central government's new measures were the consequence of "terrorist provocation and will not affect individual rights or interfere with the civilian au thority."
