TITO ON BALKANS: Belgrade, 6 – Yugoslav leader Josip Broz Tito arrived in Skopje in Yugoslavia by train today from Thessaloniki where he had made a brief stopover at the military cemetery to lay a wreath at the war memorial. He made a speech in Skopje before a crowd of 200,000 people, describing Greek-Yugoslav friendship as the foundation of peace in the Balkans. He accused Albanian Communist Party leader Enver Hoxha of attacking Yugoslavia in a recent speech, saying it was «hard to believe that today, after so many years of efforts to secure peace in the Balkans, a new Goebbels was making inflammatory statements against Yugoslavia.» Skopje is the center of a region that both Albania and Bulgaria consider to be the object of exploitation by the Yugoslav government. «Yugoslavia cannot permit such irresponsible attacks such as that made by Hoxha… It is not true that Yugoslavia wants to carve up Albania in an agreement with Greece, as Hoxha claims,» said Tito.
