The Yugoslav Foreign Minister, Milos Minic, this week visited the soviet Union with a personal message from President Tito. In a two-day visit on Monday and Tuesday (27 and 28 March) Mr. Minic also discussed mutual defence arrangements with Soviet Government leaders.
SYNOPSIS: Apart from discussions with the Soviet president Leonid brezhnev the highlight of Mr. Minic's visit was a lengthy round of talks with the Soviet Foreign Minister, Mr. Andrei Gromyko. They discussed mutual defence arrangements, proposals for nuclear arms limitation, and the Middle East situation. Mr. Minic carried a personal message from the Yugoslav President, Josip Broz Tito. Reuter's newsagency says the message is believed to report on his discussions earlier with the United States President, Mr. Carter, and the British Prime Minister, Mr. Callaghan. Mr. Minic had just visited Somalia and Ethiopia, and Reuter says the war in the Ogaden was almost certainly discussed too.
