  • Description

    PRESIDENT TITO OF YUGOSLAVIA, ON A VISIT TO RUSSIA, ADDRESSED THE CLOSING SESSION OF THE SUPREME SOVIET LAST TUESDAY - A RARE HONOUR FOR A FOREIGNER. HE PRAISED MR KHRUSHCHEV FOR "ACTING BRAVELY" DURING THE CUBAN CRISIS, AND SUPPORTED HIS "TALK INSTEAD OF FIGHT" FOREIGN POLICY OUTLINED EARLIER TO THE SUPREME SOVIET.

    BEFORE PRESIDENT TITO SPOKE, MR KHRUSHCHEV DELIVERED AN ATTACK ON THE CHINESE FOR THEIR CRITICISM OF RUSSIAN MEASURES IN THE CUBAN CRISIS. IT WAS DESCRIBED AS THE MOST DIRECT RUSSIAN COMMENT EVER MADE ON THE IDEOLOGICAL RIFT BETWEEN THE TWO LEADING COMMUNIST POWERS.

    THE SOVIET LEADER DECLARED THAT THE SO-CALLED MARXIST-LENINISTS WHO CRITICISED HIS CUBAN POLICIES WERE TRYING TO GET THE UNITED STATES AND RUSSIA AT EACH OTHER'S THROATS.

    PRESIDENT TITO IN SUPPORTING MR KHRUSHCHEV, SAID HE HAD "ACTED BRAVELY AT THE MOST CRITICAL MOMENT, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE INTERESTS OF ALL HUMANITY AND SHOWING THE FARSIGHTEDNESS OF REAL STATESMEN."
