  • Description

    President Tito of Yugoslavia arrived in Addis Ababa on Monday (9 February) at the beginning of a three-day visit. The Yugoslav leader who flew in from Zambia, is on a month long seven nation African tour.

    He received a warm welcome at the airport from Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie. Later a 21 gun salute was fired and Ethiopian air force jets swooped overhead as Marshal Tito and the Emperor inspected a guard of the imperial bodyguard.

    Members of the Ethiopian capital's Yugoslav community were among the crowds on hand to greet the President. The two leaders had their first round to talks on Tuesday (10 February) and agreed on the need to step up preparations for a forthcoming summit conference of non-aligned states.

    In the evening the emperor gave a state banquet in honour of Marshal Tito and his wife.
