  • Description

    Yugoslav President Tito arrived in Budapest on Saturday for a weekend of informal talks with Hungarian Communist Party leader Janos Kadar on international, bilateral and internal developments.

    Flags of both countries decorated Budapest streets as Party Secretary Kadar, President Pal Losonczi and Prime Minister Jeno Fock met the Yugoslav leader on his arrival by train from Belgrade.

    President Tito, 82 next month, was originally scheduled to visit Hungary last February, but postponed his trip in order to rest after a tour of the Indian subcontinent and Syria. This was his first visit to Hungary in seven years.

    The weekend talks were to be mainly informal and private. President Tito was expected to be briefed by the Hungarian Party leader on the latest Warsaw Pact meeting in Warsaw. Although Hungary is in the Warsaw Pact and Yugoslavia is non-aligned, the two countries have extensive bilateral trade ties, with both laying stress on economic reforms.

    President Tito received a warm welcome from the Hungarian press. The Communist Party daily Nepszabadsag welcomed him to Hungary as "the outstanding personality of the international workers' movement." Another political daily, Magyar Hirlap, said "Yugoslavia earned respect by carrying out a non-committed anti-imperialist foreign policy."
