  • Description

    Enthusiastic clapping greeted Russian Premier Kruschev as he stepped from a TU.104 jet airliner on arrival at Tirana, Albania, May 25. Albanian Party Secretary Enver Hodja and State leader Mehmet Shehu led a large 'welcoming committee' which included East German Premier Otto Grotewohl on holiday in Albania.

    A large military delegation, led by Russian Defence Minister Marshal Malionvsky, accompanied the Russian Premier on this, his first, state visit to the Soviet Union's smallest satellite country.

    In an open car Kruschev then drove through crowded streets to the Capital's Government building, where he met other Parliamentary officials.

    The majority of the Russian delegation returned to Moscow May 31. Premier Kruschev intends to stay in Albania until June 6.

    Russia and Albania called for a Balkan 'Summit' conference and the establishment of an atom-free zone in the area. The statement was contained in a joint communique signed by Kruschev and Hodja in Tirana June 1. It continued...a ban on rocket and atomic bases would be a major contribution to turning the Balkans into a zone of peace and quiet.
