    SYNOPSIS: President Tito flew in to Andrews Air Force Base on Monday evening from Belgrade. He was greeted on his arrival by United States Secretary of State Cyrus Vance. 85-year old Marshall Tito is the last of the elder statesmen who rose to power during World War Two and is a leader of the non-aligned group of nations. According to Reuters the underlying significance of his talks with President Carter is Yugoslavia's drive to maintain equally good relations with the two superpowers and China as a safeguard against interference in its internal affairs.

    The United States has repeatedly pledged its support for Yugoslavia's independence and relations with Washington have steadily improved since the start of the Carter administration. Officials in Washington say that the two Presidents will discuss east-west relations and other global issues.
