  • Description

    THE CRUCIAL MEETING BETWEEN CZECH AND SOVIET LEADERS IS BELIEVED TO HAVE STARTED TONIGHT (SUNDAY) ON CZECH SOIL CLOSE TO THE SOVIET BORDER. LAST NIGHT, IN A TELEVISION AND RADIO ADDRESS TO THE NATION, THE CZECH LEADER MR. DUBCEK DECLARED THAT CZECHOSLOVAKIA WAS DUTY BOUND "NOT TO RETREAT BY A SINGLE STEP FROM THE ROAD ON WHICH WE HAVE STARTED OUT".

    IN HIS BROADCAST, THE REFORMIST LEADER INSISTED THAT THE CHANGES OF THE LAST SIX MONTHS WERE IN NO WAY A BETRAYAL OF SOCIALISM, AND THAT CZECHOSLOVAKIA CONTINUED IN ITS LOYALTY TO OTHER SOCIALIST STATES, PARTICULARLY THE SOVIET UNION.

    BUT HE ALSO THANKED THE PEOPLE OF CZECHOSLOVAKIA FOR THE MASSIVE DEMONSTRATIONS OF SUPPORT THEY HAVE GIVEN HIM, AND SAID THEY WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE ENTITLED TO DECIDE ON THEIR FATE.
