    Background: President Tito of Jugoslavia was filmed by Visnews in New Delhi Jan 14 where he arrived from Madras, escorted by eight Vampire fighters.

    Marshal Tito and his wife were received at Palam airport by Indian President Dr. Prasad, Vice-President Dr. Radhakrishnan, Premier Nehru, members of the Indian Government and foreign diplomats.

    Sun-tanned from his tour of Indonesia the Jugoslav President said he was looking forward to a constructive exchange of views.

    President Prasad expressed the hope that the visit would further cement the friendship between the two countries.

    From Palam airport Marshal Tito drove in state through Delhi to the Raj Ghat where he placed a wreath on Mahatma Gandhi's tomb.

    Later he attended a banquet given in his honour by President Prasad and said in a speech there would be no peace in the world if all nations were not allowed to decide their own destinies and if the tendency of interfering with the affairs of others continued. He was glad - he added - that peace-loving nations belonging to no block had achieved success and had stopped aggression.

    After his seven-day stay in India President Tito will visit Ceylon, Ethiopia, the Sudan and - again - Egypt.
