  • Description

    Strict security surrounded Yugoslavia's President Tito when he held his second round of talks in Bonn with Chancellor Helmut Schmidt of West Germany on Tuesday (25 June). President Tito is paying his first ever state visit to West Germany with the aim of intensifying mutual economic cooperation.

    River patrol boats, helicopters and hundreds of armed police formed a protective screen around the President to safeguard him against possible attacks by exiled Yugoslav political extremists. In a speech to an official luncheon with Herr Schmidt on Tuesday, President Tito proposed a toast to "comprehensive cooperation between the two countries" and said differences in political views should not present any obstacles.

    President Tito stressed his country's determination to preserve its independence and said it was the best contribution Yugoslavia could make to security in Europe.

    At the first meeting, the two leaders discussed the Middle East situation. The second round of talks revolved around European security, world economic issues and the position of developing countries.
