  • Description

    PRESIDENT TITO OF YUGOSLAVIA ARRIVED IN CAMBODIA ON WEDNESDAY TO BEGIN A FIVE-DAY STATE VISIT. MASSIVE SECURITY PRECAUTIONS WERE IN FORCE TO PROTECT HIM AFTER THE CAMBODIAN HEAD OF STATE, PRINCE NORODOM SIHANOUK, ANNOUNCED LAST FRIDAY THE DISCOVERY OF A CHINESE-INSPIRED PLOT TO KILL THE YUGOSLAV LEADER.

    THOUSANDS OF TROOPS AND POLICE WERE MOBILISED TO PROVIDE SECURITY FORCES, DURING PRESIDENT TITO'S VISIT.

    NO MEMBERS OF THE CHINESE, CUBAN, NORTH KOREAN OR NORTH VIETNAMESE DIPLOMATIC MISSIONS WERE AT THE AIRPORT TO WELCOME PRESIDENT TITO. NO REPRESENTATIVE OF THE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT ATTENDED EITHER.

    MEMBERS OF OTHER DIPLOMATIC MISSIONS WERE AT THE AIRPORT, TO JOIN PRINCE SIHANOUK AND MEMBERS OF HIS GOVERNMENT IN AN ENTHUSIASTIC CEREMONIAL WELCOME.

    PRESIDENT TITO IS IN CAMBODIA FOR A SERIES OF TALKS WITH THE HEAD OF STATE, AIMED AT UNDERLINING THE FRIENDLY LINKS AND NON-ALIGNMENT POLICIES OF THEIR COUNTRIES.

    REPLYING TO A SPEECH OF WELCOME BY PRINCE SIHANOUK, AT THE AIRPORT, PRESIDENT TITO SAID THE PRESENT SERIOUS INTERNATIONAL SITUATION MADE IT MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER THAT PEACE-LOVING COUNTRIES STRENGTHEN THEIR COOPERATION FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF PEACE.

    PRESIDENT TITO AND PRINCE SIHANOUK LATER DROVE TO THE ROYAL PALACE, THROUGH FLAG-BEDECKED STREETS, LINED WITH CHEERING PEOPLE.

    A ROYAL DINNER WAS LATER HELD IN THE PRESIDENT'S HONOUR.
