  • Description

    President Josip Broz Tito of Yugoslavia met with Syrian President Hafez Al-Assad in Damascus on Wednesday (6 February).

    President Tito was accompanied by his wife and a large delegation for a two-day stay -- his first since 1967.

    It is understood that the 81-year-old President, who is highly-regarded in Syria, attempted to ease the deadlock which has bogged down all moves t secure a settlement between Syria and Israel following the October 1973 war.

    The two countries hat close ties, and Yugoslavia supports Arab demands for Israel to withdraw from occupied territories and for the national rights of the Palestinian people. But an interim agreement, of the kind reached between Israel and Egypt, would help quieten the situation along the tense (and still active) Golan-Heights cease-fire line.
