    Background: President Tito of Yugoslavia was at Belgrade Airport on Wednesday aftarnoon (13 February) to greet his Mexican counterpart, President Luis Echeverria, who has been making a tour of European nations this month. The Mexican President has already visited Austria, West Germany and Italy, and is making Yugoslavia his last stop before returning home.

    Since Yugoslav protocol does not require the President to greet visiting Heads of State on their arrival in the country, President Tito's ???ssence at the airport was seen by local observers as a mark of respect for the Latin American leader. Members of the Mexican community in Belgrade also turned up at the airport to join in the welcome for their leader.

    President Echeverria is due to leave Yugoslavia on Friday (15 February). On Wednesday night, he began talks with Yugoslav leaders, talks centering around international issues. Both countries are non-aligned nations and they are, according to Western Sources, seeking a "new deal" for smaller, developing countries to protect them from the larger powers.

    Both country's Foreign Ministers have already signed a protocol agreement which will lead to cultural and technical exchanges between Mexico and Yugoslavia.
