  • Description

    Yugoslavia's Foreign Minister Koca Popovic was filmed at Athens airport June 16 on arrival from Belgrade for a two-day official visit as guest of the Greek Government. He was welcomed by his Greek counterpart Averoff and Yugoslav Ambassador Milkovic.

    Popovic is returning the visit to Brioni - Marshal Tito's summer residence - paid by Averoff last year, and at will have discussions with Greek officials in an attempt to coordinate the foreign policy of the two countries.

    One of the main topics is reported to be the Rumanian proposal for a missile-free Balkan area. Yugoslavia supports this but will decline to take part in a conference on the subject if Greece refuses to be represented. Last week the Greek Government informed Bucharest that in present circumstances Greece could not accept a Rumanian invitation to such a conference.

    Greece has already signed an agreement with the United States on the establishment on Greek soil of four guided missile units - two equipped with "Honest John" and two with "Nike "rockets. The USA are at present also negotiating with Italy about similar installations.
