    OVER 200,000 BELGRADIANS CARRYING YUGOSLAV AND CZECH FLAGS MARCHED ON THE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN EMBASSY IN BELGRADE YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) TO PROTEST AT SOVIET MILITARY INTERVENTION, AND TO SHOW STRONG MORAL SUPPORT TO CZECHOSLOVAKIA.

    THE FANTASTIC DISPLAY OF LOYALTY ON BEHALF OF THE BELGRADIANS WAS WITNESSED BY CZECH FOREIGN MINISTER JIRI HAJEK, STOPPING IN BELGRADE ON HIS WAY TO NEW YORK TO ADDRESS THE UNITED NATIONS.

    MR. HAJEK THANKED BELGRADE WARMLY FOR THE SHOW OF SUPPORT. HE SAID: "THIS IS TRUE SOCIALIST INTERNATIONALISM, AND FOR US IT REPRESENTS A REAL AND GREAT HOPE."
    WHILE THE RALLY OF SUPPORT WAS BEING HELD OUTSIDE THE CZECH EMBASSY, TROOPS GUARDED THE BELGRADE EMBASSIES OF THE WARSAW PACT COUNTRIES WHOSE FORCES ARE NOR IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA.
