  • Description

    President Tito of Yugoslavia arrived in East Berlin on Tuesday (12 November) for a four day official visit to East Germany, his first in over nine years.

    The eighty-two year old Yugoslav President was given a warm welcome at Schoenfeld airport by East German Party Chief Erich Honecker, and other senior officials. Relations between President Tito and the East German hierarchy were strained over the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, but have improved in the past few years. There has also been a growing expansion of trade between East Germany and Yugoslavia.

    President Tito is expected to discuss the European Security Conference and next year's All-European Communist Summit with his East German hosts.
