  • Description

    President Tito of Yugoslavia has been much feted since he arrived in Moscow earlier this week. But the core of his visit were two days of intensive talks at the Kremlin with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev, Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko and other top members to the Politburo. At the talks, which began on Wednesday(17 August), the two leaders shared many viewpoints on foreign policy issues but President Tito was intent on reaffirming his country's independence from Moscow.

    SYNOPSIS: Many of the most momentous political decisions of the 20th century have been made within these walls at the Kremlin. Mr Brezhnev and Mr Gromyko take their seats. With President Toto already into advanced old age -- he turned 85 this year -- The Soviet Union is contemplating Yugoslavia's immediate future with intense interest.

    For his part, Tito wants to keep Yugoslavia free from the Soviet embrace from which he prised it in 1948. This conflict of ambitions is even present beneath the cordialities and protocol. One issue Mr Brezhnev was expected to raise was increased cooperation between the Soviet Union and non-aligned nations.
